Yeah, with 98 the passwords were not for security but for each user's preferences Once it boots up you can delete the files in the windows folder that have a PWL extension. Those are the files that hold the password info. Then the next time you boot up and the password box opens you can create a new password or keep the password line clear and just hit OK for 'no password'. Then you won't be bothered by the password request again.

There are two tips for you.

1. Enter into safe mode, log in as default admin account, there is no password in it. If the default account password has been changed, see next

2. Find Windows Password Key and download it( You can do in any computer not yours). Burn to a blank CD or USB, Insert it to your computer then use the disk to reset your password to blank without knowing the current password.
