How do I reset my password on Windows Embedded Standard

Clayton, Josh 0 Reputation points

I have a version of Window Embedded standard here, and my issue is the password has been forgotten. I have looked allover the internet but I haven't found anything that helps so I thought I would post a question here. How do I reset a profile password on a system like this? There are no other users so far as I am aware and I don't have any qualms about losing any info that might be stared on it so if I need to do some sort of factory reset I will do that.
