Default Facebook Password Reset Help!

Ok so my wife and I share a facebook account. The problem is I created it while I was in college. I used my college email account as the login. However, I no longer have access to that account. My desktop at home has my password saved in IE but I need to reload Windows on that computer. It is infected with some viruses - and it's Vista - yuck!.

I tried to create a new email and set it as the default, but it won't email my password to my newly created email. It won't let me remove the original account. I also don't remember what I answered for any of my security questions.

Anybody know a good solution?

Now go and change the default email address on the account to one you have access to.

you will probably still have to type the original email address in as the log in though. Even though you changed the email address used with the account.
