You can't you have to reinstall windows or ask the previous user for the password or guess it.

Just log on as an admin user and remove it from control panel, user accounts. Better still just use the runas or run as admin in a standard user account.

Be careful. An oddity exists where what you think is a user is not the same name anymore. Sometimes people change names and the account remains the old name.

Hang up and live.
