I don’t want to say for sure that this sounds somehow not correct, what good is a password if you can easily get utilities which can extract it.

You can boot to the Talking Win PE and it has a utility for finding the passwords.

Another option is to look on-line for the F-key you need to use on boot up to recover the computer.

And there is a utility called Magic Jelly bean that you can use to either remove or gather the passwords on the computer.

I have a used computer that a neighbor gave me.  It is a Windows7 OS.  It has 3 password protected user accounts on it that are using 2/3 of the hard drive space.  I don't know the passwords.  Is there any way that I can remove these accounts?  Can this computer be restored to factory fresh without a Windows 7 disk?
