Linux version for an old Dell computer which has Windows 7 installed?

I have salvaged an old Dell computer which has Windows 7 installed.  I do not have Admin password or rights.  Is there a Linux version still available for this old thing, and where can I obtain it?

How old we talking? Does it have a Pentium 1 or higher with at least 512 MB...

How old we talking? Does it have a Pentium 1 or higher with at least 512 MB RAM? If so I would suggest SolydX or Puppy. I have had great success with Puppy on a Dell Inspiron 8600 with 256 MB RAM. If you have enough muscle for Win 7 then your machine could possibly handle Linux Mint with the LXDE desktop environment(a personal favorite).
