You need to supply much more information. For instance what is your problem?

If the computer is being passed down to you, I strongly suggest you reinstall the operating system. There may be data on the computer which you are not intended to see. Formatting and reinstalling Windows will begin overwriting the old data. In addition, you'll be able to setup the accounts (including the Administrator) just the way you want.

Apologies if I don't respond to your reply immediately. I don't check this site daily.

If no admin shows on welcome screen you then need to start in safe mode. Administrator should show. It may need a password. May have to reset it or recover it.

So you need to Hack the computer to see what the previous owner had on it. Sorry I for one am not going to help.
