How to bypass admin password on Windows 7 AND system 5 error?

So, here's the thing. Some stupid guy put a fake Windows 7 copy on this computer, and it's impossible to download anything, manage accounts, or even access certain programs due to the administrative account having a password HE made. Apparently nobody ever got the password and now I'm stuck trying to hack it. (The user is called Mason.)

I've tried all the hacking and bypassing I know of (and could Google), but so far nothing's worked. I tried the "regedit" method when on Safe Mode, but that had errors. I also looked up how you somehow make sticky keys turn into a shortcut for CMD when on the login screen, but I wasn't sure how to do that. On the CMD in Safe Mode, when I try putting in "net user Administrative 1234567890" or "net user Mason *" which gives me the "enter a password for this user" option, it all leads to (you guessed it) System error 5.

Basically, most hacking options work until I get to the end product and it's ALWAYS System error 5 occurring. Now, I could use normal methods of getting past System error 5, but as far as I know it's impossible without (you guessed it again) administrative powers.

So is there some possible way to get past "System error 5 has occurred. Access is denied." without administrative privileges? If so, that will lead me to bypassing the admin password. Any helpful tips on doing that would help too, so I don't waste time on failing methods.

If there's no way to get past this conundrum, is it because the not-genuine copy of Windows 7 screwed it all up? Thanks in advance.

    You'll need an application that runs from a boot CD which blanks out the administrator password (or password of any user) by modifying the registry remotely while the registry is not loaded. When you try to modify the registry when it is loaded (as in Safe Mode), you get Error 5. The link the first person gave you should work, and here is another. You'll need to follow the instructions on burning it to a CD (on another working computer) and then use it on the affected computer by booting from this CD. You can also use a USB stick if your computer supports booting from USB.

    Step2: After enter the safe mode, you can see the default administrator account, just click it to enter the system.

    Step3: Open User Account in control panel, pick the account you have forgotten the password to change the password.

    Step4: Restart the computer, you will log on with the newly created password or without password.

    Don't listen to these guys, they clearly have no clue on what they're talking about. I am a developer at Microsoft so I know a thing or two about computers. The only way to reset your windows password 100% safe is to use a software called Reset Password Pro.

    The software allows you to create a boot-disk, that can be made on a CD/DVD or USB stick. The boot-disk can then be inserted into any locked machine, and it's a simple case of pressing reset. Here is their official site:
