    I think these following info may give a hand for you:

    1 .password reset disk
    Windows Vista allows you to create a password reset disk with a USB flash drive in few seconds. It can help you recover Windows Vista password when you forget it.

    2. a Windows password recovery tool

    Step 1. Download and install Windows Password Unlocker
    Step 2. Create a password reset disk with the software.
    Step 3. Boot your locked computer form the password reset disk.
    Step 4. Reset the password with the password reset disk.

    Take it easy.Now I collect three solutions to help you solve this problem.What you have to do is prepare a blank USB/CD drive.                                                               Solution 1: Use a Vista password reset disk.
    You could easily create a Windows Vista password reset disk through Vista's control panel with a USB flash drive.
    a. Start -> Control Panel -> User Accounts and Family Safely -> User Accounts.
    b. Create a password reset disk on the left pane.
    c. Click “Next”, follow the forgotten password Wizard to create a Vista password reset disk.
    On the logon interface with incorrect password, click the reset password link and there will be wizard. Now you can recover Windows Vista password with the created password reset disk on your PC within seconds.

    Solution 2: Use free Vista password recovery tool

    There are two popular tools: Ophcrack and Offline NT Password & Registry Editor. The former which is based on rainbow tables will spend you much precious time to download but just can reset passwords less than 14 characters. The latter supports Windows NT/2000/XP, but not AD password recovery.

    Solution 3. Professional Vista Password Software

    Windows Password Rescuer Professional, With this software, you can easily login your PC by burning a bootable CD/DVD or USB flash drive.
    Why would the tools be so popular for PC users? That’s because the tools do not require special PC technique or skills. Users can quickly get out problem within 10 minutes

    You can try to reset the password in Vista with command prompt.
    1. Press F8 to enter Advanced Boot Options just before the Windows loading screen appears.
    2. Choose Safe Mode with Command Prompt.
    3. Log in with an administrator account when you can see the log on screen.
    4. Type net user in the command prompt and then hit Enter. All the Windows account user names will be listed for you.
    5. Type net user Helen 123 and hit Enter.

    ‘Helen’ is your locked Windows account user name. And ‘123’ is the new password you want to reset for the account.
    If you cannot enter the safe mode, I’m afraid you have to create a password reset disk with a CD or USB drive as follows. Otherwise, reinstallation will be your only choice.

    Step 1: Download and install Windows Password Recovery Tool 3.0 from http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com in any computer from its official site.
    Step 2: Use CD/DVD/USB drive to create a password disk via the program.
    Step 3: Boot your locked computer from CD/DVD or USB
    Step 4: Recover Vista password with the burned CD/DVD or USB flash drive.

    I think the best way for you is trying hard to remember the password. If you really cannot remember, you can reset password from another user account with administrator credentials or Do-It-Yourself (DIY) third party recovery tool. Google third party password recovery tool or Windows Password Seeker, maybe can help you.
