I  am new to this forum so I hope I am in the right place and thread.  I have a E-Machine (I know, junk) that is only a few years old.  I have been gone all winter and returned and tried to log on.  It said "other user" and wanted a user name and password.  I tried everything I know and nothing works.  No one has used it while we were gone so I don't know what happened unless I accidently hit something while I was trying to log on. Obviously now I can't use it at all so I am writing this from my laptop.   Can anyone help?

You could try a password recovery program such as Ophcrack. I've never used it myself but it sounds good. I would suggest using the bootable version. 


Official website for Ophcrack:



Download link for the bootable image for vista computers (since you have vista this is what you would want):



Here is a guide on how to use Ophcrack bootable version (it's done in detail):
