The computer is not useless it is just that you cant access the data and files on it. It is quite easy to clean reinstall an operating system on it but all the data on the computer would be lost.

You could try booting to safe mode and logging-on as Administrator, which may not have had a password set for that specific name. There are ways of possibly hacking into the system but I always feel very dubious about advising how this might be achieved - if only because the same approaches can destroy data if not successful. There are loads of hacking and cracking sites out on the internet but protect yourself from malware if you go visiting such jungles.
