I you have access to any account of the administrators group on your system you can get a copy of lophtcrack 3 (LC3) and crack the password on the account you have forgotten. It can be time consuming (i cracked a 10 alpha-numeric character combination in 16 hours using its brute force method), but it is easier than formatting and reinstalling everything.

Of course, if you had access to any of the administrative accounts you could then simply reset the password anyway.
