I was given a used compaq pc with Windows Vista installed. I need to completly removed all the past owners information, including her password, which I don't know. This causes me to have to log in on guest user with limited authority. I do not have any o f the disk that came with it when new. Is there any way I can clean this up as if it came from the factory. THanks for your help with this!!

It is against the policy of BleepingComputer to provide information on methods to reset or bypass the Administrator password. Though your question is most likely legitimate, there are others who may read this topic and use the information for less savory reasons. It is for these reasons we do not provide this type of information.

If you have any questions, please feel free to send me a private message or an email. Thank you for your understanding.
