working around a password set by your employer could be grounds for expulsion from the company. is what you to install worth your job? the machine is company property after all.

so i'd go with Adrean's suggestion and if the answer is no, leave it at that.

After the advice given, am now thinking along the lines of not attempting to recover the admin password on my relatives company laptop rather was thinking along the lines of a usb solution!,what would you feel is the best way forward with this?just a portable browser or I think you can now get windows 7 on usb?.Would all his data then remain on his usb and nothing goes on the laptop?,any recommendations and or links to software would be great and thanks so far for all your help.
