Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
If you are using non administrator account b4, then maybe your administrator account has no password. you can log off and switch to administrator then leave the password blank.
if ever you donot see the administrator account then you have to restart the machine and when it prompted you to log on then do not proceed. you press ctrl+alt+DEl 2x to let you type the username.
On username: type"administrator"
then press enter
that is all!

If you have forgotten your password if you have another user account with administrative privileges you can log into that account and change your original user accounts password from the User Accounts applet in Control Panel.
If you dont have another account like this set up or dont have the password to it you will need to log into the built-in Administrator account.
In XP Home boot the computer into Safe Mode.
Do this by repeatedly tapping the F8 key as the computer is starting up.
This will get you to the right menu
Navigate using your Up arrow key the mouse will not work here
Once in Safe Mode you will see the normally hidden Administrator account
The default password is a blank
In XP Pro you do not need to go into Safe Mode
At the Welcome Screen do Ctrl-Alt-Del twice to get the classic Windows logon box.
Type in "Administrator" and whatever password you assigned when you set up Windows.
If you reset the built-in Administrator accounts password in Home or have Pro and dont remember the password there are ways to change the password for that account to a blank
hope this helps
