Question about Computers & Internet
With the limited information you have, I would ask if you have the original Operating System setup disk (ie-windows xp, or win7, or the OS of your choice. When I buying a second hand computer, I would highly recommend formatting the hard drive, and a fresh install of the entire system. Not only will you start from scratch, and have to undo any problems that the former owner had or caused, but you just never know what may be on a computer. There could be hidden viruses, porn stashes, and only God knows what hidden there.
If you have the setup disk, insert it, restart the computer, and follow the prompts to format the drive and re-install the operating system. If not, try to find one. If you're brave, format the drive and install Linux. It's not too hard to learn, and will probably save you grief in the long run. That last bit is just a personal opinion though.
Let me know how it goes
