Hello,

 

Not sure what Microsoft had you do, but have you tried NTPassWd?

have you you tried that password reset app on Windows 10?

The last update appeared to be in 2014 so it may not work if he uses Win10.

He May have to use a paid option. Cheapest option I could find is http://www.pcunlocker.com/buy.html

Here is the fix.  Ultimate boot CD https://www.ultimatebootcd.com/ (if link is an issue it can be removed).  Easy to create USB bootable drive that has all the tools you need, including the ability to go in and change the password for local accounts.  You cant change windows while using windows, especially if you cant log in.  Hope this helps.
