You certainly have the GUESS log on, use it to enter your PC; then start a under a new username with administrator privileges and....use a HINT question to remember your password!

All you have to do is restart it and press the F5 key to start in safe mode. Then a screen will pop up, choose restore to an earlier date. You will get a window with a calendar with darkened dates which are valid restore points; use the latest date or a date you know what the password was.
