Hey, I got locked out of my computer several days ago. I tried several free software. It took me two days and got quite messy. Unfortunately none of them work for me. Finally I made it work with Password Recovery Bundle. The good news is that it works. The bad news is it is not free.

I have forgot windows 7 password few days ago. And I had no idea to do, my friend David recommended me use a tool called Windows Password Reset, just need a few minutes, I reset my windows password easily! Everyone who lost winodws password can have a try.
I have used ,Windows Password Recovery Tool 3.0 and removed my Windows 7 password forgotten.
1. Start Windows Password Recovery Tool 3.0, select Reset local account password for Windows 7/Vista/XP/2008/2003/2000, and then click Next.
2. Insert the CD/DVD or USB flash drive into the computer. Select CD/DVD or USB, click on Burn to start burning a password reset disk.
3. The password reset disk will be successfully burned automatically then. Then click Quit when finishing burning. Then you can use the password reset disk to rest Windows 7 password. It worked great for me. Hope it works for you as well.
depends what your trying to do. assuming your doing this on your own computer to access files (for some reason or another) booting from a recovery disk will work fine. I personally have backtrack5 on a disk for that specific reason. simply press (usually f2 or f12) on startup to access your BIOS settings and change the boot order to boot from the cd/dvd drive before the hard drive. your computer should then boot in backtrack5, login using the combo username: root password: toor and from there you can access the hard drive to recover your files. please note this is for educational purposes only, and if you are trying to "hack" an administrator account on a school or home computer this wont get you very far.
Why do you want to crack the password? If it's a good reason, I can tell you how, but if it's for nefarious reasons, I don't think anyone here will help you. The best answer you will get for that is what Vyger said, and even that is very generous.
You format the drive and do a fresh install.
I seriously doubt anybody on this site is going to help you break any kind of password without a very good reason..
+1 breaking password is definitely frowned upon here.
