I bought a used Windows 7 PC, turns out there are two accounts on it, both require a password. I am only able to get on using Guest, which won't allow me to do any changes to the PC because the UAC is turned on and it is requiring a password to move forth.

Any suggestions? I don't have a Windows 7 disc so unable to format..

contact the original owner/manufactuer/retailer because tom's cannot aid someone in cracking or bypassing passwords because it is against the rules as we have no proof that you definitely indeed own the laptop or pc.
