      This is so close to a double post it ain't funny. If I was you, I would change this post before Daniel sees it so it doesn't look anything like your other thread in the Forum.

        I think this site will best assist you with your question.

          Actually, it's the opposite. The meaning of "password cracking" is retrieving the current password, and is difficult. The Offline NT Password & Registry Editor doesn't crack passwords, but just changes the password (i.e. writes a new one).

          Because of this forum's rules, we can't help you with cracking passwords. Search Google or something...

            Actually, you probably won't. The algorithm is almost certainly a "one-way" function that does not have an inverse, so it can encypher a password but cannot necessarily decypher it. For example, passwords CAT and DOG may both encypher to 123. This does not help you reverse the process.

            I would also assume that, while the encypherment algorithm may well be public knowledge, the keys used definitely are not!

              While theoretically true, there ARE tools that can reverse the hash. A simple Google search will bring some nice reults. I'm not an expert in this, but that's why, for example, any password with less than 14 characters is considered to be with a lower security than any password with over 14 characters.

                Thanks for all !!

                I know that the access of the SAM File is 'one way', but i have the file.

                its path is: %SystemRoot%\system32\config\SAM

                i can copy it using ms-dos (even the FileSystem is NTFS) to any other drive like (D, then my program will excute the command e.g: 'Import SAM File...'.

                so, the problem ('one way') has been removed !!

                the second problem is the 'Algorathim' of the SAM file !!

                Can i get it anyway , please ...

                    ZeroCold,

                    Why do you want to know that password so badly? Why not do you just changing it, and remember that password?

                      i am sorry for that !!

                      in fact, i have my friend's computer.

                      and he told me that he want to know the password without changing it,
                      to open the computer with relaxing.

                      that's all

                      Thanks ...

                        In that case I would change it.
