    Google or Bing for Windows Password Recovery Tool. There is no shortage of
    options. Some may require you to have another PC on which you can create a
    Linux boot CD. from an iso image.

    Actually make that Windows Password Recovery Tools, plural. There is a
    product named exactly that which they want money for. Might be worth it, but
    for a one time thing, there are free options.

    The first thing you should do is check whether you really forget login password or not. When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account ?Administrator? and sets its password to blank. So if you have forget your user account password then try this:
    Start system and when you See Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys Twice and it?ll show Classic Login box. Now type ?Administrator? (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Press Enter and you will be able to log in Windows.

    Or you can get into the Safe Mode to reset your account password from ?Control Panel -> User Accounts?. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.

    Windows XP and further versions also provide another method to recover forgotten Password by using ?Reset Disk?. If you created a Password Reset Disk in Past, you can use that disk to reset the password. If you want to save time and without lose anything,recommend you to use a third party software--Windows Password Rescuer.It can recover windows 7/vista/xp/2008/2003/2000 password within several minutes.
