Just try to use Windows Password Killer Software. It is a reset program and my friend used it before. Last time, my friend Tony lost his Windows password. He searched many ways and at last he used Windows Password Killer. He was so happy that he reset password successfully in 5 minutes. So I think you can have a try.
