Basically-tapping F11 immediately after powering on. Depending on which version of Windows you are running there are a few variations.
For Windows 7:
For Windows 8:

It may be possible to reset the Windows-login password.
For a "desktop" computer, since you have physical access, you can also delete any "power-on" password.
Much quicker than a "system restore", which may DELETE all your personal files, if you are not careful!
Or, Google-search for "Nordahl offline password".
Download this software, and burn it to a CD-recordable.
Boot your computer from this media, and follow the on-screen instructions to "blank" the current password.
Then, reboot normally.
When asked for the password, just press ENTER.
When Windows is running, set a new password.
