Whether you can get back in depends on your OS and some other factors. IF you run Windows XP you can often get in as follows:

  1. boot the computer
  2. hold the F8 key down as soon as the BIOS stops putting out info (black and white box of system specs, usually)
  3. the system should start in safe mode
  4. IF YOU ARE LUCKY - you will see an account named "Administrator" with a chesspiece logo, and no password
Log in this account, go to control panel>users and take care of business!

If you are in Vista, you may be SOL, If you are in Linux you ARE SOL, If you are in Mac just trash it and buy a real computer. (a personal bigotry of mine) 
You may be able to do some magic with a Gnoppix CD in even the worst cases, but for the average user it is more feasable to Back up your data and reinstall the OS. (you CAN back up data even without account acess in nearly all cases)
If you are in a corporate environment ask your IT staff for help. Ask your manufacturer for help. Ask other users on the box to let you in.
Hope this helps.

I can't log in my Facebook account

Point your web browser at Welcome to Facebook Log In Sign Up or Learn More

If another account comes up, log out of it by clicking the down-pointing triangle in the upper-right then clicking "Log Out."

If you then still can't log in to your account, click the "Forgot your password?" link located just below the password box on the login page.

If you're getting an error message, what does it say?

Forgot password to log onto computer, how do I get pass that or reset to another password. Or remove password altogether?

Depends what password it is. Is this to log into BIOS? Or log into a system account on an operating system? And if it is the latter, what operating system version do you have?
