So basically a few months a go a family member had passed away and I am tasked gaining access to said member's laptop. I am looking for software that I can set up via bootable flash-drive. I do not know where to begin, what is safe, and what is the best method of cracking into said device. I know windows used to have this old bootable CD that can override any windows password but Microsoft discontinued it as it was a security issue. I happen to have said copy of CD but I ended up miss placing it somewhere in my house. I more of less want a way that I can use a flash-drive to quickly gain access into said computer that won't screw over my main pc after downloading it. nor do I plan to spend any money on said software.
