Question about PC Desktops
Try this it might help
Turn on the computer, as soon as it comes on start pressing the F8 key. Keep pressing the key, eventually you will get to a window that will give you the option of going into windows in safe mode or different other modes, Choose safe mode.
Now when you get to the windows logon just choose the administrator account, go into control panel, user accounts and click on change an account. the one you forgot the password for should be there. if it is, just click on delete password. reboot and windows wont ask for a password for the account.
If that helps let me know. if it doesnt give you the administrator option at windows logon then let me know and i will get you the solution

OK, if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightened
security on it so you've got to have a password reset disk which 99% of the
people who own laptops with windows 7 fail to do. It should be one of the
first things you do when you buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced with
reinstalling the Operating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.
If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:
Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Mode option. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it gets to the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the userid for which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator (hopefully you didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once the desktop appears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, but this is normal for safe mode.
Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgot the password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.
Reboot your machine.
