Admin password bypass

  paddyjack 13:11 15 Sep 2004

I have been asked to look at a computer, and it needs restoring to factory settings (Packard Bell) XP Home, easy enough to do.

The problem is that the person that set it up initially put in an Administrator password nobody knows what it is, and the person that did it is not available.

I know that there is a program available to assist in this situation. I believe the program was written by a Norwegian, any help would be greatly appreciated.
