Windows 7: Forgot Password

Forgot Password

What should one do if they forgot their user password?

My real issue is that I forgot my User password for the only, and hence, Administrator account on my laptop. I was going to try and do a system recovery from my Sytem Image back up, but I can't access the System Repair boot menu without the password.

Alternatively, any information for reseting/removing an Administrator User account password for Windows 7 (where a password recovery disk was not previously made) would be extremely helpful.
