I doubt that such software exists, but hey, you never know. Search around on yahoo about ppc passwords and security. I beleive Microsoft even once provided a program for unlocking passwords on Windows 98 computers.
The fix around Windows 9x passwords were even simplier than that, you could simply delete them...... but unfortunately Windows Mobile has moved on since then.
Unless you have security software built into the ROM like the anti-theft software available, a hard reset will clear the password.
I, like most, won't explaining ways around passwords on a forumn like this, as you may not have stolen the device... but there may be other people out there looking for ways into theirs that haven't come across them innocently...
In future I suggest you do often syncs with a PC to back up contacts/calender etc, and save your important data to memory card, that way if you do need to reset you won't lose much.
