Hacking Passwords

So, ever want to log into your friends computer, but don't know their password?  Well, on a good well protected computer, you are probably screwed.  But, on most computers, (I'm sure this will work on many public computers, like the ones you find in Hotel lobbies) there are some simple work arounds.

1:  The first thing you should try is booting the computer, and booting it into safe mode.  This can be done differently depending on the computer, but usually you have to hit a function key (f(x)) to get it to boot into safe mode. From there, log in as "Administrator" with a blank password.  If this works, you can then change or create any passwords for any other user.

Other methods coming soon!
