Try guessing the hint, or if there is another account try

Start > Run > control userpasswords "thats 2 words"

if not reformat computer ?

hope that helps

"control userpasswords2" sorry about that, thats the correct 2 words

See if you can guess it?
Are you locked out completely?

there is only 1 account

i have tried to guess but no joy

  rosierd 11:50 02 Feb 2007

Well the only way i can see about getting around that without actually getting the password is reformatting the laptop

Did the laptop come with recovery cd's?

  melly0909 11:52 02 Feb 2007

no he has taken all discs and smashed the screen

Argh you may be in a spot of bother!
What operating system is it?
