    Also try this:

    1.) Press <ctrl>+<alt>+<del> twice at login screen and it'll show the classic login box.
    2.) now enter Administrator in username and leave password field blank.
    3.) It should start windows and now u can change the password of the lost account ;)

    Its not 100% guaranteed but works many times if the default administrator account is never used :)
