Power up your 'puter and press f8 to enter windows in safe mode.When it boots into safe mode go to your start button... select control panel.. and find user accounts . Enter and make yourself a new user account.. select administrator account . Close and and reboot the computer. Select your new user account and it should boot into windows. Go back to user accounts and you should see your account.. a guest account.. and the account of whoever owned the computer before you . That account will say password protected. select delete user account and click on the old users account . Windows will say it will delete the account and all files of the user. if it asks select ok and be patient . It will be a few minutes as windows deletes the account. Do a final reboot and the old account and password should be gone.
Good luck.
