My friend windows wont start up. So he is trying to do a windows repair using his XP disc. However when he tries this the computer asks for the administrator password. He cant remeber what it is. How can he get round this? I know there are programs to clear forgotten windows passwords but can you use these if windows cannot even start up. Is there anything that he can do without a full re install in which case he would lose all his stuff. Any advice would be appreciated.
