right i have a friend with a small problem, he was doing his coursework for school, some form of database, and it came to the password part, instead of passwording the file in question he managed to password access on his user account (admin rights), ok so he screwed his password even tho' he confirmed it. so far the workaround is to log in using other family members accounts and he can open any document without the password prompt. my question is, how can i reset it to not require a password when he uses his account, would a uninstall/reinstall reset the password status, like i say the guy is admin on his own pc, so he can reinstall no probs. will it work though ? or can anybody shed any light on this for me please, we don't want to have to recreate his user account as it has loads of info there..
