Default Windows Password Help

Hey all. I have a friend who's daughter put a password on to log on to windows and now she dont remember what it is and I was wondering if there was any way to get around the password without reinstalling windows. He said that he has some info on there that he doesnt want to lose. Anyone have any ideas?
