Do you mean the one I chose when the account was set up years ago, which I've changed several times since, or his original administrator's one, or the one which the computer told him was incorrect (not that he would know now !).  You can see what a novice I am. ::)

Use whatever method your husband used to sign in whether that's by password or pin - the trick is to get in with administrator privilege which allows you to set or reset the passwords.

PS on the screen to enter the pin there should also be another line under the box which says "sign in Options" clicking on this also allows you to switch from Pin to Password and vice versa
