We aren't supposed to respond to password help requests but if you aren't the user who set the password up, they will know you've been into their account.

If you didn't set up the password reset procedure when you created it, you'll need to go in to Safe Mode by restarting and tapping Function 8, then log in as Administrator and hope there isn't a password for that account as well. If you get in, go to Control Panel>User Accounts and delete the password for your account. Clearly if you aren't the user who set the password up, they will know you've been into their account.
