There is no way (or at least no Microsoft approved way) to recover a
forgotten password. You are lucky that you can still get in on a remembered
password. You must now change it immediately by typing the following command
at a Command Prompt:
net user nico xxyyzz
When finished you should do three things:
- Synchronise all other passwords
- Make a note of the new password
- Create and test a second Admin account so that you never end up in this
awkward situation again. You must, of course, record this password too.
