    Default Bypassing a password

    Please could you assist? I've been given a rather old laptop (Advent 7901) with Windows XP. Bad news - it is password protected. When the system boots I'm presented with a request for the password in order to access the desktop. At the risk of providing too much information, the laptop belonged to my brother-in-law who sadly passed away a week ago. I was given his laptop but unfortunately no one knows the password. Is there any way of 'hacking' or bypassing the password please? Thank you for your time.

    Hello Bcoharzis,

    I'm sorry for your loss.

    It's always been a policy of the forum not to provide information on how to by-pass a windows password. I'll contact you via private message with a additional information.

    Thanks
    Joe
