THIS WILL ONLY WORK IF THE LAPTOP IS ON WINDOWS XP OR NT, AND MAY SHOW UP ON THE COMPANY NETWORK
IN WINDOWS THERE IS HIDDEN ACCOUNTS ALL READY CREATED E.G. ADMINISTRATOR IF YOU WERE TO START THE PC IN SAFE MODE (run > msconfig > boot safe mode or VGA mode) (or hold F8 at imediat boot > safe mode),YOU COULD LOGON AS "ADMINISTRATOR" AND CREATE A NEW ACCOUNT BY THE FOLLOWING METHOD:
Start> Run> type "control userpassword2" > New account (Acount name) (do not put full name) > select power user > Finish.
Restart Windows, Uncheck the boot in safe mode box (minimal drivers & devices.
when the pc comes on as far as the Administrator of the system is concerned according to the users panel in Controll pannle every thing is the same you are limited but you can install and do basicly most things nut not system restores or edit critical windows files!
Hope this helps, PS. Sorry about the spelling & grammer. BEN .
