Answers :

Hi,
\015\012 You can try the following steps:
\015\0121. Restart the computer
\015\0122. On dell logo screen(before windows starts), tap the F8 key slowly 5 to 7 times
\015\0123. Select the safe mode
\015\0124. If you see the adminstrator a/c, login using the same
\015\0125. To continue working in safe mode , press yes
\015\0126. Click start >control panel>user account
\015\0127. You can change the password for the old account here
\015\0128. If you want to create a new account you can also do the same.
\015\012
\015\012Note :if you are not able to login using the adminstrator account , you would have completely remove everthing from the computer and redo windows on it using the cds.
