    click start|run|"control userpasswords2"
    click the account and reset password.

    you mean to say u dont've the Administrator password also ?
    did u try loggin in as user Administrator and leave empty the password field ?
    if u dont know any of the login username/passowrd ( how come? atleast admin password should be knwon by ur h/w people)
    resetting it is the only option
