Angry Forgotten password

Hi,
How I can reclaim back my computer after setting a password to log on and not being able to remember it correctly?
Thanks for your help

I used another computer to burn Cd and the computer still wouldn't boot from it. Going in from the safe mode and deleting password from administrative account did the trick. Thanks

We could have bypassed all these suggestions and got you straight to that resolution but you said it was the "master account" so it was assumed that it was the administrator account you had locked yourself out of.
