In case you were interested, you can also do this on the command line:

net user <your username> *

This will prompt you to enter a new password for your account. You can also substitute * for the actual password which will change it without any prompting.

If you have owned another available admin password, it can work:

  1. Log on your PC
  2. Click Start -> Control Panel -> Add or remove user account
  3. Select the account you want to reset
  4. Click Change or Remove the password
