A mystery user in our computer lab installed a swahili keyboard on one of the CPUs. The administrative password contains a "\". Seems there is no such key/symbol in the swahili language. Noone can logon to change keyboard back. Solutions?

Hello and Welcome -
A first logical answer is to install an English / American keyboard that has ( \ ) on it and use this to open or log into the account -

Once you open the account you can get the Administrator to select a new password to suit your keyboards .............
