Scroll down to the bottom......perhaps you gave it a 'hint' that will trigger your brain into remembering the password ;)

How to Log on to the Computer By Using a Password Reset Disk
If you forget your password, you can log on to the computer with a new password that you create by using the Password Reset Wizard and your password reset disk:
At the Windows XP logon screen, click the user name that you want to use. The Type your password box appears. Press ENTER, or click the right-arrow button. The following error message appears:

Did you forget your password?
You can click the "?" button to see your password hint.

boot to dos with a win 98 boot disk
Do a change directory to c:\windows

type:
del c:\*.pwl-then pres enter
type:
del c:\*.sam

This deletes all saved passwords on the system and the database that windows stores passwords in..the password in theory would be blank on the administrator ID

What operating system, I can test it real quick.

Although I'm not too sure what the entire situation here may be ;)
