I recently found a laptop in my house. I asked the owner if he wanted it anymore and he said no. He forgot the password, and I obviously don't know it either. Are there any tools that anyone knows of that I can use to get the password? Preferrably something that a person without computer skills can use?

Edit: It's an IBM Thinkpad if that's important. Windows XP professional.
