Smile Windows XP Password + HD
My friend's kids changed the login password on their Windows XP and he can't get in now...the kids don't remember the password they used...he came into town today with just the hard drive so I could save his pics, etc. I have his HD hooked up to my pc with a USB to IDE/SATA/ATA kit and I saved all his pics, etc. He wants to know if there is a way for me to go into the HD and delete the password so when he goes home, he can plug the HD back into his machine and be able to get back into Windows XP...I'm running Windows 7 (x64) and can see his HD in My there a way to do this? BTW, thank you for any help!!
