Unfortunately with out this and the password reset disk there may not be an easy way to get around this problem with out doing a fresh install of the operating system on the pc.
In this instance I would recommend seeking professional help from a computer store/technician.

A computer technician will be able to recover your admin password without having to do a clean install of Win7

You can activate the Administrator Account offline using a bootable disk. Do not reset any passwords. Only activate the Administrator Account and work from there.
Edit: If you can get to a prompt in a normal account try this first. Type CMD in the search box. Right click > Run as Administrator.
At the prompt type
net user administrator /active:yes
Logout of the account. You should see the Adminsitrator account. If not reboot. Then use this account to clean the computer. After set back the adminstrator account by typing
net user administrator /active:no

OR you can just use Offline Windows NT Password & Registry Editor. It very simple to use with many documents on how to use it.
Simple, as asked for.
It will reset your password. I just hope you don't have encrypted documents on there.
