Microsoft Money 2004 password issues

I am having a problem accessing Money 2004. I shut down my computer one night and the next day I went to open Money and it is not recognizing my password. I didn't change it and tried to type in many different possible passwords (caps locked too)but no luck. I was wondering if there could be a default one??? I tried system recovery to the morning before it happened and also I tried to uninstall and then reinstall the whole program. When uninstalling it said it would keep all the data so I figured that couldn't hurt. But then after reinstalling I am getting the same error message that my password is incorrect. I even ran my Adaware and anti virus to see if by chance there's some virus or spyware but everything came up clean. Any suggestions? It should have lost passwords on the main page for issues like this!!!!!

Thanks, I checked it out and it might work but $195. Not sure it's worth it.. And there is no way to recover the password otherwise because I installed the program on another computer and it says plainly no one can help so put your password in a safe place. Too bad my own computer changed it on me.. I went out and bought Quicken so I will just start over..
