There are a few ways to fix your deal.
Best is to make a password reset disk but no one does.
There are some free sites that you can send some data to and they will send you the old password.
There are some live cd's that can either find or reset your password. Ophcrack, John and some live linux cd's can reset them.
Some live cd's are made from microsoft os's such as xp vista and maybe windows 7 that can be used to reset password.
I know this may not help but sometimes I re-step my exact path when I did something like that and once in a while I remember if you think it might be that you forgot.
