a.) How do you forget a password that you use daily?
b.) The kids cannot "lose" a password they can only change it!
c.) I hesitate to ask this but is the computer yours?

There are any number of free password reset programs that can be downloaded.

Note! these are password reset not password hackers or crackers.

Have you tried to login in safe mode as administrator and the change the password

Hello,
If you share your computer with other users it's fairly simple to regain access to your account. You could ask one of the other users to log on to Windows with their password and perform the following steps :

Click the Start button
Click "Run"
In the "Open" field, type "control userpasswords2" (without the quotes)
Click ok
Windows opens a user accounts dialog. Select the user with the lost password and click the "Reset Password" button. Enter a new password (and a second time in the confirmation box) and click ok. Click ok once again and you are ready.
