If you can't get into Windows at all and you really have to do a complete restore then try one of the Linux distributions that run from cd. You may well be able to save your files to an external drive before you resort to to the restore.
but we can't advise people how to circumvent the Windows password login - for reasons that will be obvious.
I know it's frustrating, and I'm not for one moment suggesting that you're trying to get into someone else's user account or computer. Some people do try to do that, however, and I'm afraid I'm not prepared to be the one who allows the publication of ways to do it.
