You can open up temporarily and use the Find user forms to set a new password.

Find the two location elements in Web.config for ui and ui/admin and comment out the existing authorization and allow all:

<!--<allow roles="WebEditors, WebAdmins, Administrators"/>
<deny users="*"/>-->
<allow users="*" />

No problem! Don't forget to change the config back when you're done :-)
