Initial Log-On to XP

Hi all,
my neighbour just called from work,,, he moved his home PC from bedroom to the lounge & now can't log-on to XP.
He asked me to have a look, but all I can do is get to the log-on page. I don't know his user name/pass (nor does he ??)

I tried SAFE MODE but got to the same point.

Is there a (simple) way past this please ?

thanks

If he doesn't know his Name and Password in the lounge how did he log on when the PC was in the bedroom?

These items are not location-dependent!

1/ If he doesn't know his Name and Password in the lounge how did he log on when the PC was in the bedroom?
1/ It was always automatic. It was programmed by the shop before he bought it.
He now says that as the grand children are visiting, he wanted to add a user ?!?!

2/ These items are not location-dependent!
2/ I've never been told that before,,,, I'll try moving mine from the lounge ! lol

thanks anyway
