Well, if you forgot your login password in windows vista, you can use Windows Login Recovery to bypass Windows vista password. And here is guide for you:
1: Start Windows Login Recovery software, select Reset local account password for Windows 7/Vista/XP/2008/2003/2000, and then click Next.
2: Insert the CD/DVD or USB flash drive into the computer. Select CD/DVD or USB, click on Burn to start burning a password reset disk.
3: The password reset disk will be successfully burned automatically then. Then click Quit when finishing burning.
Then you can use the password reset disk to crack windows vista password. It works great. Hope it be helpful.

When you get the logon screen tap control alt and delete together until you get a different sign in screen.  Remove her name and type in administrator without a password.  This should let you in.  Go to control panel, users and remove her password.

Unable to login to laptop due to forgotten login password

First thing you can try is:

1: When booting up the laptop Press F8 until you see a screen show that has an option to boot in "Safe Mode"
2: Once it has finished booting up you can Select Administrator and hopefully there is no password set.
3: If there is no password set then login as Administrator and goto "Control Panel", Select User Accounts and change your daughter's password to something she wont forget ;p

if that fails then you can try this

Offers a program that resets your passwords.

Hope this helped.
