    Hi
    I have purchased a second hand PC. I can't get pass the password. I have tried pressing F8 and selecting safe mode then repair mode then selecting Administrator but it keeps asking for a password.

    I want to wipe it clean and then buy and install windows 10 and microsoft office.

    How do I get past the password?

    Please advise.

    Thanks
