Getting in my computer that I forgot the password
I forgot the password under my name
Is this a good question?

There is a program called "ntpasswd" it wipes any users password, admin or not, on Windows NT and up. You just need another computer to burn the program to a flashdrive or cd and boot it up like any OS. I've used it many times on computers that people wanted me to fix, but forgot their passwords.
It is terminal/command line based but fairly straight forward and easy to understand.
Tricky for the novice because of the text based Linux interface. It requires you to read and think. If you can handle that, it is perfect.
What it does is remove the encrypted password so it is like a new system.
id suggest finding or developing whats known as a rainbow table.
This cycles through passwords one after the other until if finds the right one. you will need a programmer to make you one, and they are not cheap.
Newer Versions of windows, (7 and up) have a limit to how many passwords you can attempt, so if you want to use the PC again, you will likely have to format the device, and reinstall windows.
