    I think the best method to recover windows password is using windows password recovery software. Burn the .iso file to a blank CD or a USB flash drive or a floppy disk, insert the CD(USB/floppy disk) into the problem computer and your password will be reset to "Blank" without losing any data and you needn't reinstall windows OS.

    Most of password recovery utilities above are based on Linux. I prefer to use PCUnlocker, which is based on Windows PE operating system.
