Can someone recommend an easy way to recover a windows user password on a Dell Win 7 PC?  Is there a Linux boot disk that would work?

Thanks,

I recommend you do some google searches for password recovery.

As I cannot confirm that you are trying to recover your OWN password, I cannot offer assistance.

Recovery is not possible afaik, there are recovery CD's that reset the administrators password. Once you've done that, just set a new password after logging on as administrator.
