Much easier way: "Go to Control Panel, User Accounts. Click on the account you want to change the password on, and select the option to change it. You do this while logged into the account you want to change the password for."

This advice comes from this Thread:

This will not work. Read carefully, he has lost his administrator password. He is logging into a limited account. Fischer, please use the link that has been provided in the post by "Bill the adult".

Thats the correct way of getting your administrator account back. Its a back door entry into windows user management and thankfully it has not been plugged yet.
