Hey guys and gals, my friend bought a new laptop and is now locked out of it because he forgot his Vista password. Is there any way for him to recover it/bypass it or will he have to do a system restore? I have zero experience with Vista so I wasn't able to help him. Any help you give me will be much appreciated by both of us. Thanks. Also, we tried going into safemode in an attempt to bypass, but that didn't work.
