Have you tried starting in Safe Mode, keep tapping F8 on start-up.

presumably you've been using the computer, so surely you know it by heart, don't you?

It would also make your post clearer if you used punctuation marks.

While you are restarting your machine press the F8 key to get the "Boot Mode" menu. Choose "Safe Mode". Once you get to the Log in screen log in as administrator with no password. This might allow you to reset forgotten local admin/users passwords.
