Loc: some where else
1.Restart your computer.
2.When the machine first starts it will generally list some equipment that is installed in your machine, amount of memory, hard drives installed etc. When it is finished with that it will say "Starting Windows". Immediately after seeing "Starting Windows" press the F8 key.
3.You will now be presented with a menu. Select the option for Safe Mode using the arrow keys.
4.Then press enter on your keyboard to boot into Safe Mode.

You will be presented with 2 accounts, one will be her account the other will be administrator, click on admin, hopefully that has not got a password on it, if not wait till pc boots up to desk top, goto control panel, user accounts and click on her account, and delete password, reboot pc as normal

if admin account has a password it will either be admin, administrator, password or leave it blank.

If you get to 'starting windows' you've gone too far and can't F8 bring up the safe list. Start spamming F8 as soon as you press the power button and you'll get it. Log in with safe mode into the admin account using a blank password and you can then go control panel > user accounts > change password on her account.

If she's using anything past windows XP this won't work and you'll need a password reset disk. This one is the easiest to use:
