Service Log On tab "This account:" password, in registry?

4 posts in this topic

I have a service that has "Log on as:" set to one of my accounts and it has the password already entered. I'm trying to make another service that will log on with the same account but I forgot the password... I can just have it reset but I was wondering if there was a way to find where-ever the current password is stored on my PC. Namely something in the registry like where all the rest of the info is: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/ControlSet001/Services/ServiceName

Well that would be a really insecure way of doing things...

To answer your question, no there's no way to find it. Just get the account reset. :)
