Go out and buy a copy of XP and do a new installation...wiping the HD in the
process.
You have no idea what use the system was in before you bought it..or what
virus lurk on its HD.

Have you tried going to Safe Mode and just pressing Return for the
password prompt? Often there is none on the Admin account in Safe Mode;
it's a special Admin account.

I hope you got recovery CDs with it; else you don't have any programs at
all that are legal to run and many probably won't. If you bought it
with software, they have to give you CDs or a recovery method, by law,
to sell it.
