Use option 5 from here:
User Account - Reset Password in Windows 7

The sign on process for the e-mail account should have a link named something like "Forgot Password".

Hello Clayp,

Is this for a "Microsoft account" in Windows 8, or a user account in Windows 7??

If so, then you could use step 2 and 5 in Option Two of the tutorial below to reset it online.
