not that I know of
there is another Admin account (the true Administrator account) if you go into safe mode
you can create a new account using this admin account, move the files from the previous account to your new one, then remove the previous one

If you can sign in under your account and your account is an andmin. account then you can right click on my computer and select manage/click the plus sign on local users and groups.click on users,find the account and right click the name and chose set password.
