Unable to log into user profile with my password

I logged in fine this morning, then computer did a shutdown and I have not been able to log into my profile using my password since. It says my password or username are incorrect...I can't do a system restore because I can't log into my computer and I don't want to reinstall windows because I will lose everything... Any ideas to help me?

See if you can boot into Safe Mode & login with the Admin acct.

Depending on your brand of computer, tapping the F10, F11, F12 keys should get you a Menu screen to choose Boot from CD/DVD.

I can't get past the log on screen to do the tutorial
The f10-12 options still want my password... There is no admin account. Mine is the only one
