I feel like such an idiot, I forgot my pass to my main computer (which happens to be Build 7057 of Win 7) and I can't seem to recover it. I have already used this tool and it did not seem to work on 7. Any way I can get in, short of re-instaling (not a big deal for me, the only valuable stuff on my pc is beta oses :p)

Have you tried to login with Administrator Account?
If you don't put a password on it, just press twice CTRL+ALT+DEL when you are on Login Screen and then put as username Administrator :wink:

in normal mode, it should be disabled by default.

start in safe mode and then logon as administrator, there you can change passwords :P

As i know Administrator's account disabled by default in Vista/7
I'm not sure but i think you can try to boot into safe mode and type "Administrator" in welcome screen as in previos advice. As i know Administrators account enabled in safe mode.

EDIT: Ups, Namronia wins! LOL
