    Have you tried system restore?(if you have that)
    Or if you have a recovery/image software installed tried a rollback?(Best money I ever spent was investing in one)
    If contacting thier support does no good maybe someone else here has some other suggestion. I have forgotton passwords in the past and i know it can be frustrating.luckly for me i finnaly remembered them.

    As suggested above, most products with a password have a way to retrieve the password if you forgot it. Most times if you provide your ID they will e-mail you your password, or a new password. Failing that, the suggestion to use system restore is probably your best bet.
