I recently had a call from a colleague saying her laptop would not accept her password, although up till now she has had no problem? Is there any way of bypassing this in order to get to the desktop. Once there she can then get into user accounts.

click here and enter the 3 digit security code in the box near the top and press the download button. It's a boot CD I made especially for this purpose. When the CD boots press 1, then select the drive Windows is installed on. It will then search the SAM database and show a list of usernames on your computer. Select the username with the password that you want to reset and make sure there's a X in the reset box. Then press Y to save and Esc to exit. Restart the computer and the Windows password should be gone.
