My sond has not used his pc in sometime, he is at college and has a laptop. I want to use the computer, but at the lo in it only has him as a user and he doesn't remember the password. I was told to open in safe mode which I was able to do, but then it asks for something to be typed in and i don't know what to do

No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences.
