|It the windows logon password you don't know?|
Start up the computer and before XP starts loading start tapping F8. A boot menu should come up. Choose 'safe mode'. When the safe mode user menu comes up choose ADMINISTRATOR. That account is normally not password protected. Once you get to the desktop go to USER ACCOUNTS in control panel. From there you can choose to change the account with the unknown password and delete its password.
