The user is locked, but I don't know the password. What should I do? I'm using Windows 7.

Some applications required another username to run (dotNET framework) properly. The best is to leave that user alone but if you insist on changing the password, then you need to log in with your username (which has Administration rights) and go to Users in Control panel and pick Change an Account. Select that account and choose another password as finding the current one is a little tricky.
