    I don’t have admin rights. I’ve tried using cmd to find the password. I keep getting “access is denied”. “Error 5”. This is my dad’s laptop, he was a pc genius, I can’t guess the password, I also tried downloading something , it keeps asking for a password by the admin bc he was the main user of the pc. I need help on how to bypass all of these steps.
