Default Help with old Laptop

My dad brought home his old work laptop that the company was giving away, but we don't have the password to login at home right now. Is it possible to hack into the system somehow and login? Or would I just have to wait to get the password?

Another thing is, how can I change the "classic" windows login screen (The one's always at schools) to the regular one.

And a last thing, is it possible to hack into the system and make yourself administrator?

Why just not format and reinstall XP? If you don't want to do that, you'll have to talk to Warez Monster about password resetting.
