If you didn't set a password just leave it blank.

Otherwise, discussion of cracking or getting around passwords is not allowed on this forum.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

Hi and welcome to BC.
First log on to Safe mode.
Restart the computer.
As soon as the BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until the boot menu appears.
Use the arrow keys to select the Safe Mode menu item.
Press the Enter key.
Below is a tutorial on how to start windows in safe mode, if you have any trouble loging on to Safe mode:
Safe Mode

Once in safe mode there is an administrator account and click on it.
Once you are in the admin account go to Start>Control Panel>User accounts.
From there retype your password and change it.

Edit: Since you forgot your password I can't help you with that.
Ignore the above instructions, I thought that you allready know your password for your account. Didn't read carefully...
