Ok a bit of background - was bought a Mac Perorma 460 like yrs ago and for the past 4/5 it has been lying in my garage unlooked at.....recently my mum had the brilliant idea of trying to use it to store records on but I had set up a profile on it and password protected it - but it's been so long that i've forgotten the password >_<;

A friend of mine suggested opening it up and removing the internal battery but I think that wipes everything on the HD yeah? And the boot up disks and all the software have long since been lost - also I'm now working in Windoze so I have no way of writing to a mac formatted disk so i can't simply download the software and transfer it over =/ Anyone got any ideas as to how I can get past the password screen? Any help would be greatly appriciated
