    Do yourself a favor and don't buy emachines. When it comes to computers the brand does matter. I'm willing to pay more for Lenovo anyday over Dell, Emachines, HP and the other low-end garbage

    If you do not know the password, you will need a utility to manually remove the password. Use another computer, obviously, and print out the pages for reference - you will need them handy as you go through the steps! The most popular of these utilities is Offline NT Password Editor which can be downloaded and burned to a USB bootable reset disk. There are detailed instructions on how to use this program, but it isn’t without its dangers. If you use any type of encryption in Windows, this either will fail or will make your computer inaccessible! This should ONLY be used as a last resort if you’ve totally forgotten your password and are locked out of Windows. It would be better to have a trained techie do it for you!

    This is easier than the other suggestions in this thread. With a usb drive, then you can reset the forgotten password in a few minutes.
