Because its a vista system, you have to get someone to hack the system and change the password, there is no option to boot into the Administrator account because it is dissabled by default. She has no access to the pc at all now and i doubt that a high street store will correct the problem for you (even though it can be done). They will suggest a recovery which will wipe out all you daughters personal data depending on the type of recovery done

    i need to know if you have a recovery disk or a recovery partition. If you bought the laptop brand new you should have got disks with it, if not there will be a recovery partition.
    I need you to specify what you have got before i can help you further

    ok then we have to test a theory, restart the PC, on boot hit F8 repeatedly, hopefully this will bring up a sub menu, if it does can you tell what options if any it gives you

    As far as I know, you can certainly use free utility or paid software to recover an Admin password. Free one not only wasting you a lot of time, but also losing data sometimes. Paid one could be more safe and stable. I advise this website:
