    Need help


    My brother sadly hung himself monday and I need to access his laptop to see if he messaged anyone before he did it. When I turn it on it comes up with enter pin. I've tried every one I can think of. Is there anyway to get round this without deleting all the contents of the laptop please. I know this may be a weird request but I need to know what drove him to do what he did. Thanks for you time I'm extremely grateful. 🙏

    Welcome to the forum. Sorry for your loss. It is against our rules to give out hacking advice because others could use it for illegal perposes and secondley we have know way of confirming you have a legal right to get into the pc

    Thanks for your reply I didn't think of it like that I do understand. Although I wouldn't publicly post if I didn't have rights to go on there I just need to know what his last messages are. Myself and my family are going out of our minds. No worries ill try elsewhere. Thanks for your time

    I understand you're in a tragic situation and my sincere sympathies.

    But there are both ethical and possibly legal implications in your request. Ethics, in allowing someone to access someone else's property and/or personal information, and legally (depending on laws) the device may be part of the deceased estate, and providing access could also access financial and intellectual property.

    Having the information you've given (and I commend you for being truthful) it would be unwise for anyone here to provide you with the direction or instructions that you seek.

    Sincerely sorry for your loss.

    I've done it but it required a few-hundred-dollar technician-only program. A question, do you know his E-Mail information, maybe his ISP provides a Webmail/Online connection but you'd need that login information, maybe he wrote it down somewhere?

    Really? Then why is there a tutorial on this site to do what @Noxious85 is requesting?
    @Noxious85, please see option 5 here:
    Enable or Disable Elevated Administrator account in Windows 10

    And please accept our most sincere condolences for you loss.
