It is absolutely unnecessary for the OP to clean install Windows because
he forgot the Administrator logon password!

To the OP: Here are some links to help you. You can use the ntpasswd
program to change the Administrator password to a blank. Once you are
logged in using the blank password, go to the User Account applet in
Control Panel and change the Administrator password to something you
will remember.
