or activate the hidden administrator account by using an elevated command prompt then type this command:
net user administrator active:/yes - this is wrong
then restart your computer, you can see an administrator account when it boots up, go to users then change the password of the user you want to reset the password.

My bad:
net user administrator /active:yes -

ZombieProphet, if you can login to the account which is an administrator, you can fire up an elevated command prompt and enter:
Code:
net user "UserNameHere" ""
This resets your password to nothing.
