if you look on the net you will see there are linux live disks specifically setup to reset the password. you need to accept that unless you encrypt the hard drive all your data is available to anyone.

That and:
Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Local Policies > Security Options > Interactive Login: Do not display last username: enabled

this will prompt you for a username everytime.
