    Password bypass

    Hey, I was wondering if you guys could tell me a safe way to get around a password on my fathers computer. He took a stroke 7 months ago and now he cannot remember his password. I know a little about computers but I'm pretty sure he had some important files and documents on there for work and things like that which i don't want to risk losing. Could someone either tell me an idiot proof way to do it or at least tell me if i take it to a local repair shop if they should know how to do it? Thanks.

    The only option I can give you is...

    Find the OS disc and do fresh start. restart the password. and save your work (or his) in windows.old
