alright, here's the situation: i had been meaning to change my administrator password for some time now and very late last nite, i went ahead with it. i then went to sleep (i don't usually log off when i go to sleep). this morning, apparently having forgotten that i had changed my password the night prior, i went into the control pannel to change my password again, and i seem to have forgotten the password i set. i keep getting "your original passsword is incorrect" messages.

so, i have full administrator access and i don't know my password. (i have already tried guessing several things and checking caps lock, etc.)

is there any hope for me?

You didn't set/give yourself a "hint"?
