If you have bought the computer at
auction then it is better to format it completely. Formatting it will
help you in two ways: Firstly you can start using (and storing data)
PC in a fresh way and secondly you can easily reset login password
(which is your main objective).

O.k. Then what this person did is set up an administrator password during the XP install. This overrides the key administrator account in safe mode and only allows his/her account to exist as the administrator. The computer is still good and usable, unfortunately, without the password the operating system is not. You will have to wipe the hard drive, reformat (NTFS), and reinstall the operating system. Sorry, no easy way out on this one.
