Two Options:

  1. Download Hiren Boot CD, burn it to a CD and boot from it and follow on screen prompts.
  1. If you're lucky and can get into a guest account and havent downloaded the update that patches this command line action, then you can type this into a command prompt without the quotes:
"net user <username> <new-pass>"

Where <username> is the username of the account needing the change and <new-pass> is the new password

For Example,

net user jerry abc123
