Do you have the laptop's original recovery discs? If your computer use habits
are anything like mine, if it has gone unused long enough for you to forget its
password, there's probably nothing of value on its HD that you need to preserve
and its performance is almost certain to be improved by a fresh OS install..

There are password recovery apps available, but no free ones that I would trust
not to be virus-infected.

Has anyone ever used password recovery software? If so, do you have any
recommendations or warnings? I have an old laptop that is perfectly usable but
I can't remember the password.
