Hello, I'm working on someones computer for them. They have an Admin Account but I need to get into some other password Protected accounts on the computer. I can remove the other peoples passwords but I have heard that you can lose there Files?
Do you really lose any thing by removing the other accounts passwords?

Put it this way:
A= Admin
U=Non admin Just user
users 1-4

1A [I have access]
4U [I have access]

I need to get into 2A and 3A To scan for viruses remove some of there files and some other basic things the computer owner [1A] Wants me to do on there kids accounts 2A and 3A The two kids are away at a camp and the mother wants me to do this within 2 days. What files will be messed up or any problems at all? Is there another way I can get onto them with out knowing the passwords? Please give me all the information that you can on what may be lost.

Please reply ASAP!
