There are no such things as "stupid" questions. However if you think your question is a bit stupid, then this is the right place for you to post it. Please stick to easy to-the-point questions that you feel people can answer fast. For long and complicated questions prefer the other forums within the support section.

I am really sorry and feel a right fool. I put mint on a client's computer and she wont tell me how (I presume she put the wrong password in too many times) , but she has managed to lock her user on Mint.
The error she gets says '' account disabled''
Is there any way i can unlock her user, at distance if possible
If it happens again she can pay for windows -_-

I don't think Mint will lock a user account, so the most probable source of this error is the user not remembering his/hers password. However, seeing whether a account is locked or not user the following:
Boot the system from a LiveCD
Open a terminal and mount the the root partition (here using /dev/sda1)
