What security code? Do you mean you've encrypted it?

If it's encrypted, and you don't have some admin account, the only way out is to format it. Nothing will read an encrypted drive, Linux etc... will just see it as crap data. I don't know any home use programs that can try to find the key, and it will probably take a frew hundred years on a regular computer anyway.
