Are you on the built-in Administrator account or on an account with Admin privileges ? Which account logs you off ?

The Administrator is 2 steps below GOD!

If you have never setup the Administrator account password, spend the $10 and buy a "Windows Vista for Dummies" book from your local bookstore.

Considering you are unfamiliar with "Administrator Accounts" you are not THE Administrator!

...you may be the owner or a user.

There is no need to give people such a hard time. There are different levels of computer users on this site and some may not know the difference between the Built In Administrator and the one they setup.

That being said, all Windows Systems come with a Built In Administrator account that you setup when you install Windows on your machine. Then you add a primary user who is usually has Administrator rights. Probably used your own name for this user. The built in Administrator is hidden in a away, to prevent you from messing with it. To log in as the built in system administrator you have to do

Switch Users
then type ADMINISTRATOR for the user name

And the password you used when you first installed the system. It may be nothing because some will opt for not setting a password so they can change it when the installation is done.

Once you are logged in as the System Administrator you can...

Right-Click on My Computer
Select MANAGE
Go down to the users and find your name.
Right-Click and go to properties where you can change the password.
______________________________________

All of this was said because everyone thought you forgot your password because the error message you posted is simply saying you typed the wrong password. Before you go through all of this you may want to double check that your caps-lock is off and if you have numbers in your password make sure the num-lock is on.
