Windows 7: Locked out of Windows - "username or password is incorrect"

Locked out of Windows - "username or password is incorrect"

I'm running Parallels on my Mac. When I went to log in to Windows yesterday I got the error message "The username or password is incorrect". This happened about two months ago and after an all day search for solutions, I fixed it. I'm locked out again and this time I can't find a solution! I haven't changed my password and have logged into Windows, without a problem, several times in the past couples of months. Please help! I'm willing to try anything!

First thing you need to know as quoted from the web site;

It works offline, that is, you have to shutdown your computer and boot from a CD or USB disk to do the password reset.

Then follow the list below;HTH
