  1. My 74 year old dad is in another state and he has forgotten his password/security question....


    He isn't technical savvy at all. I tried to have him put in different variations of his password. Different capitalizations, etc. It's the only sign in name on the laptop. I tried to make sure he wasn't accidentally depressing a key somewhere or leaving caps lock on. (I think windows warns you when you leave on the lock)

    Any suggestions to help him are welcome.
