Default Passowrd recovery

I have a friend that has forgotten her password. She has a Compaq, and runs Vista. I rea up on Ophcrack(sp?), but am not sure if she will be able to download it. Is there another way she can get it?


thanks
JJ

Is that the initial start up password? If so can't you run in safe mode?

The UBCD4WIN boot CD has a couple of password recovery tools on it. I used one the other day and it worked beautifully.
