If you can boot the Windows 7 DVD have a look at this one, neither tutorial method will damage/harm any data on the PC if used.

If I take this back to before I put on the password will it remove any pictures or files I put on the computer during that time?
We restored back 5 days when everything was fine but my password is still not working

The only other option may be this one, it's not a complicated as it looks and it will now harm any of your user files.
