    Hello Tara,

    Your mother can do a system restore at boot using a restore point dated
    before the password was changed to restore the old password. The
    tutorial below can help show her how to.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

  2. Hello Tara,

    If you havenot NTFS encrypted files on your computer, you can just reset the
    administrator password to blank using a Windows Password Reset Disc.

    I have used Lazesoft Recover My Password, which is a easy to use. Here is
    guides how to use it to reset Windows Administrator password to blank:

    The easiest one to use is the Offlien NT Registry Editor. This wil
    clear the password for you so you can sign in and create a new one
    Please use this one, it is trusted and probably one of the more saf
    ways to go

    This will download as an .iso file. It will need to be burnt as a
    image. So you will need imgburn or other software that will handle .is
    formats

    Links and instructions

    Scroll down towards the bottom and you will see a Download section

    As a system administrator,I've tried a couple of these utilities through the years and my favorite is the windows password key 8.0.This utility is used to reset password of any windows versions.
