Please follow the advice from LeeTutor as follows:-

LeeTutor:
This site allows you to download files needed to create a bootable floppy disk or CD-ROM which contains a program that can be used to reset passwords on a Windows NT-based OS (such as WinXP and Vista):

http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/
Offline NT Password & Registry Editor

It is a rather "geeky" tool; not a nice Windows graphical user interface.  You might want to check this page for a demonstration of its use, with screenshots provided in the article:

There is also a video about using this tool here:

when login screen comes press  Alt+Control+Delete

it'll ask Usernname and password

in user name   type Administrator

and login

after login go to Mycomputer - rightclick - manage- in computer management - Users and Groups- Users - find the username right click and set new password if u want to leave blanc leave the blank password... press ok

all the best
