i thought i grabbed the right program offline to actually break my daughters password that she put on her computer but when i try to run the program it keeps telling me that mount ntfs for writing failed. I try pushing F8 for a safe mode reboot and it doesnt come into safe mode. She has stuff on her computer so i would really hate to format it as she wont ever be able to get the stuff off of it. I need some suggestions on what to do pleaseeeeeeee anyone

p.s. dang kid tries to fix (puts password in and forgets how she spelled it) whats not broken then break it and whine

can you not just login under an administrative account? you can then assume ownership of whatever files/folders you're trying to access.

if not, then either download DSL (Damn Small Linux), burn the ISO and gain access to the drive.

follow these instructions:

Icecube also recommended "Puppy Linux" which is supposed to be more user-friendly (although i don't know enough about this particular distribution)
