Just click cancel and you're in!
If you'd set up Users via the control panel, then you'll be logged in as 'all users'.
Don't forget, even when user accounts are created with passwords, these are stored in:
c:\windows\profiles\ 'user names' eg administrator, all users, your name etc..
If you're locked out the desktop, another visual trick, disable active desktop - right click desktop -- properties -- web tab -- uncheck view my active desktop as a web page
Or, click Start -- Run -- type explorer -- click on ok
Naviatate to the relevant My Documents folder - it'll be in the route of the c: drive if you're the only user, or go via the profiles folder in the windows folder.
Bottom line - click cancel and you're in - how's that for security

Really I need more info about your system...like the OS for starters.

if you can (may or may not work)
Press F2 during POST (while the Extensa logo is being displayed).
Choose System Security
Choose setup password, set to disabled
Choose system password, set to disabled
It is likely that you will not be able to do this, since the setup password protection should block you from disabling system password...however, I've seen dumber things.
If that does NOT work, my guess is the shop you took it to removed the cmos battery for a while, then reinstalled it.
Before doing that, remove the power cord, the laptop battery, and press and hold the power on button for 10 seconds, then reinsert and try to boot.
