Post Windows Vista Laptop Problems

Hi all.

I have another laptop that is running Windows Vista. The problem is my younger brother has put a password on it and I have tried using various software and tools but they wont work and my last option is to reinstall windows.

Any suggestions before I do, I will take it to my course that I am doing to see what they suggest.

Please help!!

If you can get your hands on MSDART, you could recover the password that way.
