Login using the username "Administrator". If using Home, boot to safe made
and log in as the "Administrator". (assume no password if you did not assign
one). If using Pro, at the welcome screen use the Ctlr+Alt+Del sequence X 2
and sign in as the "Administrator".
When logged in go start>run and type
Select your User Name and then click "Reset Password".
