Are we reffering to the windows password at boot up. If so on 95, 98 & Me there is a simple fix.
When asked for the password hit escape.
Now load either my computer or windows explorer and head to windows folder. Here you are looking for your longin name that also has the file extension pwl. ie 'rsmith.pwl'. Simply delete this file, reboot and when asked for the password either leave blank or enter your new desred password.

If you do not want to delete the file you can grab your self a pwl file viewer such as pwltool from 'http://lastbit.com/getprg.asp?id=pwltool'
