change user id and password

I have my brother's old laptop but am unable to use it because I don't have his password and am unable to get it. Is there a way for me to change the user id and password so that I may use the laptop?  Thank you

change user id and password

On your computer, Google-search for "Nordahl offline password".

Download this software, and burn it to CD-recordable media.

Boot the laptop from this CD, and follow the on-screen instructions to "blank" the password.

Remove the CD, and reboot.

When asked for a password, just press ENTER.


When logged-in, enter Control Panel, and select Users, and create a new ID for yourself, granting yourself "administrator" privileges.

Logoff from his account.

Login to your new account.

Within 'Users', select his account, and completely delete his account, and his files.


His laptop now has been "assimilated" by The Borg Collective.  🙂
