Hi guys, I am using an old laptop that I received from a friend who I am no longer in touch with. It has Windows XP Pro on it with Administrator and Student users. (He is a teacher)
He simply forgot to give me the Administrator password, thus forcing me to use the student. Well as we all know, download rights and install rights are very limited. I have tried booting in safe mode, but that doesn't work either, the password is still there. Does anyone know how to get around this? Thanks!

Know what you can do.
Or you can use ophcrack that will guarantee you the password if that didn't work...
