You might be able to get around that by deleting the pwl file in Windows.

Go to the Start button > Search Files and Folders and type in:

*.pwl

Delete what it finds to the Recycle bin then reboot. You'll be asked again for a new password at reboot but just click ok.

To stop being asked for a password in the future go to the Control Panel and click on Passwords. From the Passwords Properties click Change Windows Password. On the first line: Old password leave it blank and click ok.
