Windows 7: Forgot Windows password running on Parallels

Forgot Windows password running on Parallels

Windows 7 running on Parallels 8 did an update. When it restarted it asked for a password that I can't remember! Tried everything to no avail. I've downloaded and burned to a disk various programs to reset password, but I have not been able to figure out how to use them on a Mac. It's asking that I boot from the disk. Would appreciate any help or another way to get into Windows. Thank you.

Were you using a password before the update ? What`s this password for ? Exactly.

Reinstall windows, and this time, don`t use a password. There`s no reason for one.
