I have no idea where to find help on this issue. My brother passed away last year I have his Dell desktop running win7. It is password protected on login and no idea what password might be. I have tried to login as administrator in safe mode but with no luck. Any help would be appreciated..Thanks
If it's the Windows password, you can do one of a few things. You can make a boot CD or flash drive from this utility
It'll allow you to clear the login password and access the system.
Reinstalling on a new hard drive will allow you to make the current drive secondary and recover data.
