If it's an older PC then it's probably Windows 95 or 98. In that case, you really don't need the password. When the dialog pops up asking for it, just hit cancel and it should let you in.

pc is about 4 years old, windows system is windows 2000, it asks for user name and password during booting.

Okay, Windows 2000 isn't as easy to get into as 95 or 98. You'll probably have to break the admin password and change it to suit your needs. Start here.

Kevin,

Go get the "Ultimate Boot CD"

Its a Linux based disc that will allow you to reset any password on the system.

Google for that Disc.

Format the hard drive, and then reinstall the operating system. Of course, you will need some kind of operating system running from the A or D drive to do this.

Do not format... no need...

Just boot with UBCD and you will be fine... trust me.. reinstalling is big waste.
