Forgot IE password for parental controls on windows vista

A good friend of mine has 3 kids. He was very worried about protecting his kids from porn, so in a panic, he turned on Parental Controls. His mistake was that he entered a password and did not write it down. He did not use the laptop for a week after setting the password. It was just some number that he can no longer remember. Now that he wants to accually use the laptop, he can not open most of the pages he wants to visit (NON-PORN).
