Hi,
to solve the password problem there's a way you can try:
when you turn on the pc, after the bios info (just before the Windows start loading) press and hold "F8" key
It will appear a menu where you can choose to start in "safe mode"
the system will start and you see now that you can login with an user "administrator", usually there's no password so you can access and change your users' settings
If you can't solve this way you need a more complicated way: a software that recover lost passwords. Let me know what happen so I can suggest you some of them.
cheers

Logon Change


Enable Log-On Screen


Windows, by default, is set to show the Welcome screen during startup.

To enable the log-on screen to show, go to "Start" menu and select "Control Panel".

In the control panel, click on "User Accounts".


In the "User Accounts" dialog-box, click "Change the way users log on or off" and uncheck the "Welcome Screen" option.

Click "Apply Options" to save the changes.

Change Log-On Screen Background Color


To change the log-on screen background color, go to the "Start" menu and click on "Run".

In the run dialog-box, type "mspaint" as the name of the program to "Open".


Click on "OK". In the "Paint" window that opens, select "Colors" from the main menu and click on "Edit Colors". In the "Edit Colors" dialog-box, select "Define custom colors".


Here pick the color of your choice and note down the "Red", "Green" and "Blue" values.

Write down these values somewhere.


Click "Cancel" and close the paint window without saving. Now, go to the "Start" menu, click "Run" and enter "regedit" as the name of the program to "Open".


In the registry editor, navigate to HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\CONTROL PANEL\COLORS and double-click the "Background" string.


In the "Edit String" dialog-box that opens up, change the values in the "Value data" field to the red, green and blue color values that you wrote down (e.g. 75 78 173).


The default value will be 0 78 152. Enter the values in the correct red-green-blue order, separated by a space. Close the registry editor and log off to see the changes.


Put Image in Log-On Screen Background
To put your favorite picture in the background of the log-on screen, click "Start", then "Run", and type in "regedit". In the registry editor, navigate to HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\CONTROL PANEL\DESKTOP and double-click the string "Wallpaper". In the "Edit String" dialog-box that opens up, enter the full path and filename of the image that you want to use as the background. The image must be in .bmp format. Click "OK" and close the registry editor. Log off to see the changes. hope this helps

When i open window it says password and then i want to reset it


between the lines from your English ...am I to understand that you have the log on screen where its asking for your password and not logging in with welcome screen at once ...to remove that you have to go to the control panel ...at the user accounts ..open it ...and click on the acount you use..not on the guest one ...after that click remove my pasword..
.and if you do not have a password..but that screen is still appearing even if you can log on after you hit enter ..without the password..just when you open the user account in the control panel ..instead of clicking on the user...click on the line that says change the way user log in .. ..click ..the line that says use the welcome screen ..and thats all..
If the password thing is not a full screen but a rectangular loging that asks for user and password..than you have to go to the local area connection (the 2 monitors in the task bar ) .. double click on it ..after that properties...and in that list with the protocols..you have to remove the NETWARE service ..by clicking on it ..and after that remove ..
this will allow you to change the way users log on from the panel like I explained above...
