Windows XP Password

A friend's wife left him (Divorce) and her parting gift wast to change the log on password (Administrator), is there a way to circumvent this as he has all his work files on his home PC.

Nope (for obvious reasons).

He'll need to either get or guess the password or reinstall Windows.


You are a life saver.

Thank you

Jester I understand the reasons behind what your saying? If he re-installs would his files saved be 100% safe from being overwritten.

No not 100%.If they weren't overwritten then he'd still have problems getting permission from XP to access the files......

I guess ajm has the answer for him though.

Thanks Jester for an honest oppinion

Wasn't a critism. I was commenting on the cost. But if I didn't have backups I would gladly pay that to get my data back.
