Howto reset your Windows Vista password

On my laptop I had forgotten my password because I always use the finger print reader. And I never really needed it because windows, once you are logged in, never really prompts you for it. But today I needed it and I didn't know it. So what do you do? Here are some simple steps.
  1. Create another user account with Admin rights
  2. Log in as that user
  3. Change your `real` user password
  4. Log in as your `real` user and delete the other account
Viola, password reset without knowing it. Thank you to Paul for this tip. Quite simple but I would have never thought about it.
