try to guess the password, i always suggest thts the best method. if you can't there are lots of tools available on the net to help you. these tools may be expensive , but here we have some free tools and they work great. i have listed a few tools below , go and download , follow the instrctions, you can finish it in minutes, only thing is you need a physcial access to your computer.
windows password recover tool

this tool doesn't change your password , instead it tells you whats ur old password. - password reseter tools

there are many other tools and i am sure more users will be posting more info abt that.

If you never renamed the original Admin account, type administrator for the username and leave the password box blank.

If this doesn't work, the link given in answer 1 is great.

Another solution which I haven't tried is to navigate to
Here you download a file which will create a bootable floppy or CD. When you restart the pc needing the password, it creates a file which you email to the author of the program. Your password is emailed back to you.

If don't work any of this you have one solution, to reinstall the OS.
Unfortunately if you have not the Administrator password, your options are very limited.

Try the boot floppy disk (or the CD) from this site:
I have used the boot floppy many times. It has worked every time on a computer with IDE drives or SATA drives. If you have a SCSI drive on the computer you will probably need the CD.

If the machine is newly installed & do not contain much user profiles, then you can rename the SAM file in C:\WINDOWS\system32\config and restart the machine & login with blank password.

Make sure you have the backup of system before you start.
