Scott, my dad decided to buy a used laptop (this kind) that has an issue with a Windows XP user lock. In short, it's locked! Is there a good way of overcoming the issue without having to reformat or replace the hard drive?

If by "user lock" you mean password, then you can easily remove or possibly even recover Windows passwords. Scott.

I'd think you would want to do a clean install and start fresh with a used laptop anyway.
