Hit f12 during loadup and pick password.

Surely he needs to be able to login to Vista in order to do this?

OP - can you clarify at which point you're being asked for the password (power-on, vista etc)?

neither worked. Its not in the boot menu and the other one was for removing the password if you knew it.

But both repped for input thanks

Create a boot disc :

This will do the job :)

Not sure if it is a byproduct of the way it works but Norton flags this up as a dodgy file_beware.

can you not press f8 and boot to safe mode, access the administrator account and reset other passwords?

It does, I have personally tired it (worked on over 4 different pcs). Maybe you used it wrong?

I was agreeing with you!
I know it works I have used it on Vista and on XP - different versions obviously!
