Default Windows XP Password Recovery

heres the problem: i want to install some software and it says i need to be logged in as admin but i set the password about a year ago and cant remember it. pretty much i need software that will crack the password but it needs to use a dictionary not brute force. brute force take too long as i cant remember much but i no the password is long and brute force takes ages at 6 characters. i would just let it go but my mum doesnt want me leaving my computer on over night so i reckon a dictionary should help alot as it will try words and not random letter arrangements.

heres the solution: you help me plz.

thanx, Cameron
