If memory serves, as you boot up, press F1 repeatedly and it should offer you the chance to start in Safe Mode. This will allow you rudimentary access to Windows, from which you should be able to adjust administrative settings, such as setting up your name or a new password. You can also try talking with a computer expert at a repair shop, or at a college campus, who can advise you in how to reset passwords. This works with most versions of windows, from 95 to XP, and I think even Vista, though Vista is fussier than an old maid on her wedding night.
