Default Ahem. . . .

If you use Ntpasswd the user's password gets reset. And Sooooo, they know u were in there computer. Hmmmm, don't think that that will help to much if you want to get in there undetected.

Why would you want to be hacking this file on your own computer any way?

Default Re: Extracting the SAM file

It doesn't matter what password cracker you use. As long as it does it properly. Also you have to be in a bootable OS to extract the SAM file. You can't be in windows to do it.

Default Well worth USB key

Knoppix happily runs on a 512Mb USB key, with space for a reasonable sized SAM file. Well worth the investment - a dead easy boot to Knoppix, set read/write, disable Admin pwd, grab SAM and run:-)

Why not use Knoppix from a CD and then just use the thumb drive for the file that way you have plenty of storage for the SAM file?

Default method in my madness

Most of my clients have policies which state - no CD drives or floppy drives on desktop workstations.

As yet, very few have an environment which would let them restrict USB devices:-)

That would stink not having a CD drive or floppy drive.
