Remove the user's PWL file under C:\WINDOWS. When the user restarts Windows, s/he will be prompted for a Windows password. Set it to the be same as the network password.

If this is a 95 machine, the previous post is the answetr. If is NT/2000, you really need to login as admin and reset the password, or you can perform a recovery instalation to overwrite the SAM database (where the user accounts are kept). If this is the case, I can assit you with the recovery process.
