    Default Trying to access dead Father's password locked PC

    My Father passed away last summer and I've had his laptop since then, but haven't done anything with it. I have access to a non-admin user on it and would like to get in on the admin account in case there are any nice photo's of him or of him with my little brother. I have an instillation disc for Windows 8 if that helps at all and i'm aware that i can buy usb drives that will put an admin account on the pc itself, but would like to avoid purchasing something that I'm sure i'll only use once. If theres no way to get access to the account then it would still be good to know how i can factory reset the PC then.

    Many small to medium computer fix-it places have been successful with CD or USB booted PC-unlocker. If you go to a local store, have proof of ownership with you.
