Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook
If he was very tech savvy, you're pretty much done unless you buy a specialty tool to do the job. If he wasn't there's a number of tricks you can try. The first thing I'd try is to hold down the F8 key and tell Windows to boot in safe mode.
You could also try a blank administrator password.
Barring that, if you're not tech savvy yourself, you're going to be pretty stuck. The password system was designed to keep what you're trying to do from happening.
If you have a Linux machine, though, you could hook the hard drive up to that and you might have better luck rummaging around in the file system as root that way.

With too many reset tools about Windows in the Internet sometimes we will not know which one will be better. As for paid reset tools so many you can see though their price can be different. I have used Anmosoft Windows Password Reset, which can support most OS and can reset admin or other local accounts password. And it is safe and effective. The most important is that it is the lowest price among paid tools.
