You shouldn't have to download anything if i remember correctly booting into safe mode in vista will give you another account called "administrator" with no password on by default. Simply log in and change the password that way.

you know, i just did this

and the message box reads

"this feature requires removable floppy disc or usb flash drive"

it's now about 20 sites i've checked to 

bypass the password

they all say

"sure"

but it's bull

 

PLEASE GIVE AN ANSWER IN PLAIN ENGLISH"

WHEN YOU GO TO THESE SITES

THEY LEAVE YOU WITH NO ANSWER

Read this... http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/593920/unknown-login-password/?p=3846151

 

And please don't use all caps.  That is considered shouting and bad computer etiquette.

FWIW:  Not every "answer"...is applicable to every system/situation encountered.  Trial-and-error is a valid key to resolving some computer (and everyday) problems.

We sympathize with your situation. Though your question about passwords is most likely legitimate, there are those who would pretend to need such assistance in order to gain unauthorized access to a computer not owned by them. We have no way of confirming ownership or if someone is being truthful with us. As such we don't provide step by step instructions but we certainly can help you find the information you seek.

This article describes the Microsoft policy about missing, lost, forgotten, or incorrect passwords...Microsoft support engineers cannot help you retrieve passwords of files and features in Microsoft products that are lost or forgotten.
