How does one forget their admin password? /me looks @ amar32145 suspiciously

You will need something like Winternals ERD Commander

I too find your request highly suspicious... Ophcrack is an opensource solution to the $$$ Winternals ERD Commander. If you are in a legitimate need to recover a password from your own system, that's one thing, but if you're planning to hack someone's admin password, think twice about this behavior as it can get you into trouble!

I use ERD and it now comes as part of MDOP.

There are other tools out there that will do it.

It makes me laugh about security, when I can crack anyones Window password in a matter of seconds.

No machine is safe with local accounts.

It seems that there is a lot of, as yet unfounded, suspicion. I`d like to think that this is`nt the norm. Truth is often stranger than fiction. :unsure:


I did the same thing & am sure I know what I tried 2 put, but must have miss-typed it the same way twice.! I tried 2 check out, `Ophcrack` that graysky suggested, page wouldn`t load.! I intend 2 try the, `Winternals ERD`, sometime if I can get it.

Thanks, iamtheky for http://www.piotrbania.com/all/kon-boot I have dl`d & burnt, `konboot`, will try it & report back.

Up till now I`ve repeatedly tried different key combinations of the same, (or adjacent), characters until I was blue in the face. On several different occasions. I had 2 give up in the end & reinstall a second, (the same XP again), OS. So now I boot to a choice of OS`s, (XP or XP).! I can get into one & not the other. I now have windows & windows.0 folders. I can see my folder though I can`t access it in any way.

I`ve had 2 reinstall several of the same programs, (some of them more than once.!), on a separate partition. I don`t know if it`s the reason that one day all my .exe files dissapeared, leaving only dodgy shortcuts, Attached File  Shorts.doc   33.63KB   4 downloads.

I tried to do a HawkPE-42-7z disk, dl`d & burnt it, changed boot sequence, booted with Hawk, didn`t work. Tried with a download of, Windows_Password_Reset_6.0, it was a demo, no functionality. Tried 1 or 2 other recovery programs that I could get my hands on, no joy. :no:

I know someone who says that he`s got the tools to do it, though I`ll throw a few more things at it myself over the next few days & hope I can get some help here.

What say the people..?
