Solving lost password issues

I recently installed Windows Server 2003 and everything is running well. About one week later, I rebooted my server and attempted to log in with my administrator password and the system blocked me from logging in because of an administrator account problem. Now, I don't know what happened to the administrator password. Can you provide me with some information on how to bypass this and fix my problem.
It sounds like you'll need to reset the administrator password. Check out NT Access – it's great for this.
