I created another user without passwords so i dont get locked out. can i just delete the user now with the password and use the new user i made and will it be fine?

I have no idea what the password is to remove it. I would like to reset this back to factory settings and i checked for a repair computer couldnt find anything like that. PLEASE Help me. I bought this from a person's estate that passed away.

Try this

To disable password protection for the Windows 7 screensaver, simply uncheck the "On resume, display logon screen" checkbox. Then, click "OK" to apply your new settings.
