If she didn't password-protect the Administrator account, you could probably
log into that account through Safe Mode. Then maybe remove her password or
create a new user account for yourself. Don't know, haven't tried it.

Other than that, you may have to ask her for the password.

If she has an administrator account, you cannot even log in to the default
administrator account, in safe mode.

You will need to ask her for the password.
