Login Password

I have recently acquired an emachine from my grandmother and I want to set the computer up for my parents. However, it's password protected, and since she doesn't know the password, this is a problem. So, my question is how do I login into the account without knowing the password? Is there a way to by-pass it? If not, I guess I should just reformat the PC. Thanks for any information. :bounce:
