We need a bit more information.

What verison of Windows (NT, 2000, 2003, XP)?

Is the account in question a local machine account or a domain account?

Do you have another account with admin rights?

If you are using Windoze XP,have Administrative rights & like GUI more go to Control Panel choose accounts option & rightaway you can set new password there

If you're already logged into an account, hit "Start", then "Log Off". Choose the "Log Off" option. When you're taken to the list where you can choose an account to login to, press "Ctrl" + "Alt" + "Delete" simotaniously two times in a row. The screen should turn black and you should see the dialog box to manually enter a username and password. Enter "Administrator" in the Username box and leave the password blank (if you have no password for that account) or enter the one you set. When you're logged into that account, go to the "Control Panel", and then "User Accounts" to change the password. That's my method. Wink
