    Is this a personal or network computer? If on a network, talk to the admin to get it reset for you.

    As you mentioned domain, assuming this is an office environment/ shared network system. It is better to ask your sys admin/network admin to overcome this issue.

    We have had a similar issue. Employees had some personal files on the domain. When they left or were terminated they tried to get the files but were locked out. They talked to the network admin and were refused access on the grounds it was against company policy. They were told if the data was that important you should have made a local backup.
