Make sure the caps lock is not on.

Password errors are always user error.

Other options:

Use Offline NT Password Editor.

It isn't the most user friendly program in the world so if you want some step by step instructions, create the CD, boot to it and post back, I'll walk you through.

The tutorial in post 2 has many easier ways of resetting the password. Click the blue words.

However post 4 works too.

Which option in tutorial post two should I use? I am logged into my computer now, but I am afraid to restart or log out again, I tried to change password or remove password in control panel, but it keep saying my current password is incorrect.

Do I have to back up all my data before I try any of the options?

That is never a bad idea. I would as a precaution. You should not need to, but it cannot hurt. Using a linux disk is one way of doing that.
