    How do I access a password protected regular user account on my computer? I
    am the Administrator, and I want to access the account without changing or
    deleting the regular account password.

  3. You would have to take ownership of the accounts profile, thereby
    locking out the user. This is a deliberate design feature, so that
    users will know if unscrupulous administrators have been snooping.
