Logging in to deceased siblings computer

This question has suggested answer(s)

I have no idea where to find help on this issue. My brother passed away last year I have his Dell desktop running win7. It is password protected on login and no idea what password might be. I have tried to login as administrator in safe mode but with no luck. Any help would be appreciated..Thanks

  • If it's the Windows password, you can do one of a few things.  You can make a boot CD or flash drive from this utility

    pogostick.net/.../

    It'll allow you to clear the login password and access the system.

  • Reinstalling on a new hard drive will allow you to make the current drive secondary and recover data.
