kids were playing with my phone and they locked out my phone with password protection (I hope they have not done anything else).
After few wrong attempts I don't have that "Forgot password?" button which should be there.

I have my phone rooted (Android Revolution HD 33.1) and usb debugger enabled.

What can I do if I don't want to do factory reset?

Thank you very much

Solved my problem
So finally after I spent 4 hours trying to fix this problem. I called HTC tech support and spent few minutes listening to some woman about data connection and that there should be this button and I had to have a working internet connection (which I had). So I was browsing functions of CWM and figured out I can do it like that:
  1. Backup phone in CWM
  2. Do factory reset in CWM
  3. Connect phone to PC and copy AROMA FILE MANAGER to sdcard from PC
  4. Restore backup in CWM
  6. In Aroma file manager settings allow automatic mounting of filesystems in CWM
  7. Delete file /data/system/password.key in Aroma File Manager
  8. Reboot

Working like a charm now.
