    My son left his computer when he graduated last year, a nice Windows 7 machine I'd like to sell locally. He has it password protected, and I can't even get in to restore it without his password. I hit F8, go to repair, and it prompts for password. I don't have a Win 7 CD to restore from either. He's going to be no help getting a password, either. Help!?!? <_<:wacko::angry::D

    I appreciate it. My son actually remembered the password, so whenever I decide to restore it, I'm good to go. Thanks again!
