You need to go to the control panel:

Start > Control Panel > User accounts & Family safety

There will be a choice to delete a user account there.

Or you can have a look here which might be easier:

Hello,

I assume you are talking about the computer's BIOS password and not the Windows password.

Reboot the computer and watch for a message that says something like "For Setup Press F10". It may be another F key or perhaps Delete. You only have a couple seconds to press it so if you miss it, just let it go into Windows and reboot again.

Once in the BIOS look for the Security section and select Disable for the password setting.

Once it is disabled one of the F keys should let you Save & Exit. When you do, it should go straight into Windows.

NOTE: If you are talking about the Windows password, just go into Control Panel>User Accounts and select Remove Password. It may prompt you for the password.

Thanks for using Fixya.

How to disable and make a passwords


There's a lot of ways of adding/editing/removing a password on a certain user account on your computer. I'll be give an advance way but should be the easiest thing to do.
Holding the windows key(the key on your keyboard that shows the windows logo) and pressing "R" will open the User Accounts window. It will also show all the available user account/profile on your computer bourngenius_11.jpg

Simply select the user account/profile that you want to edit/ add a password. If you want to delete the password simply select the account and click on the reset password button then leave the password textbox blank/null
Note: This will work if you have admin rights

Unless you can get hold of a Linux password recovery program to reset or remove the password from the Windows Administrator's login, you will need to reinstall Windows again, the device drivers and your programs.
In this process you will lose all your data that is stored on your hard drive.
If you want to save your data before you install Windows, remove the hard drive, connect it to an USB hard drive adapter (most likely you will need power to the hard drive) and plug it into the USB port of a working computer. This computer will see it as an external hard drive, copy your data you require so you can load it back onto your computer after you installed Windows.
OR
You can connect your hard drive into a working computer on the 2nd IDE controller, then you can see this drive and copy your data files.
