and I never change the question, so now i'm stuck.

Can anyone point me in the right direction on getting a password back
or cracking tool for my password.

I looked at ophcrack, but by the loks of it its only good for xp or vista

Thanks

Towards the bottom of this page there is a download link for Ultimate Boot CD. Using whatever computer you are on, download that and burn it.

Use the CD to boot onto the computer you can't login to, and follow these instructions.

You can change your password to whatever you'd like! Once you change the password, restart the computer normally and use your new password. Voila!

I know its for XP, but we've used it on 7 here at work.

Please write your password (in paper/notebook/diary) when anyone change it. Its old but good method

You need Windows XP installation files to create the CD boot disk; have a better look at the page at the "this" link and at the page at the download link at the bottom of that page.

If the Administrator account has been enabled, you could boot to Safe Mode and login as Administrator then change the password on your normal account: Built-in Administrator Account - Enable or Disable
