The easiest way is to ask your friend for the password (if he has forgotten it, he could ask where he works to tell him what it is.)
If he and the firm are relaxed about telling you the password, and having you access the contents of the computer then all should be well.
If they are unwilling or unable to give you the password then it would be a wise move to start from the beginning and install a fresh operating system. You can do this using either a USB flash drive or perhaps a DVD ( in the case of the DVD you will need to borrow an external DVD drive or even buy and fit a new one (they are very inexpensive)

You can try through safe mode and try through admin user or create a new account.
