Which I don't wanna do as there's user files all over the place, and the owner doesn't remember half of his passwords.

As long as he didn't put his files in C:\Windows, C:\ProgramData, Program Files, etc. you should be ok to do a fresh install. You don't have to wipe out the volume to do a fresh install.

Actually come to think of it... if he has the disk space, create a separate backup volume and put everything in it.... everything. Then do a fresh install on C:. Let the owner comb through his old files.
