Bruteforce is way too much work unless there's truly something critical he needs off of it which he cannot transfer via linux. I don't even know what an example of that would be. Reinstalling is the best solution.
Ophcrack uses Rainbow Tables - it's not your "traditional" brute force attack. It's very, very quick.. Apparently 178 seconds on average!
