I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

The company I work for has a control room where they have to enter data into excel spreadsheets with lots of links and macros, so we password protected the sheet so that they could only manipulate the cells that they needed. Myself and 2 other employees have access to the spreadsheet. Someone changed the password and the person does not remember what they changed it to. Is there any way to reset the password?

If your default administrator account is active and there is no password for it or if there is and you remember it you could access it by doing a Ctrl / Alt / Delete at the logon and select it from the dropdown menu.

Frustrated PHIL!

A:Forgotten password

Instead of using Ophcrack enable the hidden Adminstrator Account using this guide. The guide links to a download but the site has a newer version. I would only enable the Administrator account, not reset his password. Once in the Administrator account you can change the password of his account.
 
If the computer is UEFI then you will need to use Rufus with the iso of the utility in order to boot or change your settings in UEFI to enable Legacy or CSM boot.
