    1. Ctrl-Alt-Del > Change Password
    2. Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Local Users
    and Groups > Users > Right-mouse click on account > Set Password.
    Read the warning and proceed only if you are absolutely sure.
    3. at a command-prompt:
    net user user_name *
