If you have access to another computer that has a cd burner on it. Go to the site below and download the xp/vista live cd version of Orphcrack onto a cd. Take the cd and put it into the affected computer and reboot it. It will boot to the cd and following the instructions it will take the password XXX the machine. You can then get into it.
