A friend has forgotten their password for their laptop which using windows 7. What is an easy method to reset that password, there's no other admin accounts so I can't log in at all. Anyone have a good easy to use boot program that will reset the passwords for me thanks.

I always thought you could just go to advance setup options via f8 then run safe mode and it ignores the password, then you can reset it once logged in. Maybe this only works in XP?

That method never worked. It's against the policy of these forums to advise on bypassing password protection on any product; there's no way to tell that such requests aren't for nefarious purposes.
