    dear friend,

    You can reset the password from User account settings in control panel.

    But since you are not able to access the control panel so you have to go for repair your OS.

    Insert a bootable windows 7 OS DVD in the DVD drive.

    Restart your computer.

    After viewing the option, press any key to boot from the DVD.

    Agree with the terms & conditions of the installation & press R to start repairing.

    Setup will now copy all the files in your computer-wait till the process get finished.

    It may reboot several times during repairing-avoid pressing any key when boot from CD option appears each time.

    After the reboot during repairing, press Shift+F10 together.

    It'll open the command prompt-type nusrmgr.cpl & press enter.

    It'll allow you to access user account settings in control panel.

    Clear the older password-if you want to give the newer one,you can also provide that.

    After the repairing process , log on screen will appear.

    You can now log on to your computer using the new password-or you may log on by simply pressing enter (If you didn't set the password).

    If you have another administrator account, sign in from that account and you can change the password from control panel.
    If you dont have another administrator account, YOU cannot retrive the password back again.
    In that case, you might have to reinstall your windows.
    Thank You.
