a relative of mine passed away, they had a laptop locked with their fingerprint as a login/sign in to their computer,

 

is their any way to bypass this without wiping the drive and re-installing windows?

 

i can unlock a computer password using hirens boot cd, but would the same process work for the finger print?

If it is simply tied to the Windows login screen then see if booting a live linux disk like Puppy sees the drive contents.

It is smart to reinstall Windows on any system you obtain that has been used. You never know what was left behind.

There are many program or ways to bypass windows Logins. If you have a windows installation disk, you can use the fun Sticky Key method, or you can download an ubunutu Live CD and reset it that way, following these instructions from good ole LifeHacker: http://lifehacker.com/5612487/hack-the-sticky-keys-feature-to-reset-a-forgotten-windows-password

I would check the documentation for that particular system.
