I picked up some type of trojan which had hijacked my registry and now it has a password on admin account so now I can't download or run anything without admin password.
I tried to download the password reset tool and it failed.

Edit: Moved topic from Windows 7 forum to the more appropriate forum

Never mind, I was able to secure the admin account. Thank you.
