I have inherited a pc running xp pro, but I can't get past the user login. I have been into setup and changed the login name but it has not changed to login name and I am unable to access anything.

You need to get the Administrator password form the last owner, log in as administrator, then create your account and delete any you no longer need.

unfortunately the last owner passed on and didn't leave any documentation.

Do a web search for XP password recovery disk, make a boot CD from that, it will reset the administrator password to blank.

Or just re-install Windows on the system.
