There is a program called Winternals which can clear passwords and allow access. However this will simply remove the password and you won't know what the original password is so he will notice that you've been in. I'll see if there's another program that lets you do it and if I find one i'll post the link on here.

Why would you want to go onto the computer without him knowing?

More to the point, why should he not want her to use it while he's at work...seems very strange....alB

There are ways to get into windows if the password is forgotten or windows is corrupt (see your other thread)

There are also ways to bypass other peoples passwords however the forum Terms and Conditions click here (see forbidden territory) o not allow this.

but a personal computer is just that - personal - and we have a policy of not providing assistance to someone who wants to access another person's machine.
