    I have a Dell running Window 7 pro
    The computer was connected to remotely via a logmein link
    The user names & passwords have been changed.
    How can I restart windows not knowing the passwords ?

    So you’re remotely trying to reboot it from the windows login screen? There should be a red button in the bottom right corner. If it’s not there AND you see switch user below the password box, click that and in a second it’ll refresh and the button should be there. The right side of the button is a dropdown button that you can use to restart it.

    This was not the problem.
    Problem was I could not get into windows as the user names & passwords had been maliciously changed preventing log in to windows.

    Finally managed this thru

    Sorry but that is not correct. If you have physical access to the machine then this will always get you in, UEFI excepted. https://pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/

    Also, this thread is over 2½ years old PLUS the OP did manage to get into the machine using the brilliant tool in the link provided.
