We have a laptop at work that was never put on the network by my predecessor. It's running Windows 7. Basically, the person who used this laptop has now left and moved abroad. As he was the only user of the computer, nobody has his password, and there is data on there that is important and vitally required. I am trying to log on as Administrator, but when I boot into Safe Mode, the Administrator icon is not there as I'd expect. So I thought I'd try and boot into Safe Mode with Command Prompt, and run net user adminisrator /active:yes. But I'm still presented with the normal welcome screen with just the one user icon, so can't do that either. Can anybody give me any ideas how I get the administrator icon so I can logon?
