Hello sgt spartan and welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Use this tutorial to show you how to use your 7 install DVD to access a command prompt:

MBR - Restore Windows 7 Master Boot Record

And then use this tutorial to enable the built-in Administrator account and give you access again:

For the second and last time:

Offline NT Password & Registry Editor

Click where it says BOOTDISK -download the cd file - it is an .iso - burn it to cd as an image NOT as data. Do not format the cd.

Boot the cd - instructions are on the site linked above.

Just like Method 3 here:

Why would you choose a password you can't remember?

Someone else chose the password.

Discernment.

I have also locked myself out my my own computer, which is dumb because, I just did the password last night, and it asked me to enter it twice, but then it did an update, and I can not access my computer today. I use the same password I always have, and it will not accept it..
