    did you make a password reset disk?

    Otherwise, we are unable to help with by-passing any passwords.

    As was already said we cannot help. You could be trying to change the password on a school computer,bank computer,etc etc.
    We have absolutely no way to know.
    Call Microsoft that's the simplest

    Every tech forum I know has a policy that prevents members from helping to evade or crack. Otherwise, the legal fallout could be serious. Sorry, but I hope you understand the situation, kap911.
