It would really help to know what operation system you are using on the computer.. Windows? xp, vista, 7? Linux, BSD, whatever?

my assumption would be XP... vista/7 you have to actually go in to unhide the admin account... and well the little sister part makes be assume that it is just the run of the mill commercial PC (HP, dell, gateway, etc) with factory installed OS

For the bios password, just locate the bios jumper on your Mobo and set it to the position other than it is, you can find information on the manual of your MoBo...

Reboot w/ F8 to go in to safe mode and change/remove admin pass.

Alternatively, beat it out of your little sister
