Easy to go around a Vista admin password?

    I have a co-worker whose daughter entered the wrong password not once, but twice and has now locked everyone out of the family computer. I have seen more than a few bootable images out there for removing XP admin password but can't seem to find any freebies (or at least cheap) for doing the same on Vista Home. Any solutions that don't require loss of data or reformatting?

  2. That's why childrens should not be allowed near the (family) computer.

    His kids are grown and live at home.
  4. Ah. I understand. If an incorrect password fails to allow you in, try it again and it might work. :wavey:

    Had a boss who used the same password for every account because he "suffered from information overload".
  5. Also try it with Cap Lock on as well as off...

    You've never re-entered a password on the off chance that there was a typo?
