Help! My friend’s father is recently deceased and she needs to access his computer to pay his bills and find out about his financial information that he kept on the computer. No one else knows his password or an administrator password to change permissions so nobody can get into the operating system (Windows 7 Professional). Is there any way to do this? Thanks! – Evan K.
You may be able to use Offline NT Password & Registry Editor (which, despite the name, also works with Windows 2000, XP, Vista and Windows 7) to remove the password from the admin account and log on. It’s a bootable program that you download as an .ISO file on another computer and burn to a CD. Then you can boot the father’s computer from the CD. You don’t have to know the username; it will list the accounts that exist on the system. It’s a free download and you can get it here:
