Thank you, 2 things how can i wipe it clean as this was an old PC that has nothing of use to the children! Can i do that even though i can't get into the PC as i have forgotten the password.

 

Secondly if i download the ebcd/pcministry again will that work if i cannot get past the windows password issue?

Will Knoppix LiveCD help him get into a windows accout?

 

Yes. Recovering the windows partition will take some minor Linux/Unix tuition, but viewing it should be pretty much automatic.

This extract is from the ebcd FAQ.

 

Problem: You have forgot password of Windows NT/2000/XP user/administrator.

 

Solution with EBCD: Using this disk, you may create special mini-version of Linux, which can change password for any user. Surely, you does not need to know the old password. Also, you may edit Windows registry using it.
