Yeah format the hdd and reinstall...
or you can grab the password file and crack the hash using l0pht crack.. You will have to research yourself.. the best thing you could probably do.. is work it out yourself :p

lol, i was locked out of my win2k machine by my brother only he forgot the admin password so guess what? full hd format. My advice beat the kid up until he gives it to you, or seeing as how immature he is to do this, you could probably have mommy tell him to give it to you.

hmm, it's a tricky situation. can you still install software? if you can then just download a keylogger and get his password that way. If not, you're gonna have to do a little more work. You're gonna have to put a keylogger on floppy and somehow load it in memory from there when he boots up. I'm not sure of any keyloggers that will do this. You might have to write an autorun batch file to start the program an then continue loading windows without him noticing any difference. Or you can jus have it load and leave the computer on the login prompt so next time he comes around he's bound to type in his password. I'd look up a good keylogger that will do this for you but I'm in the middle of a writing a midterm paper rite now. But yeah, I'd go with a keylogger, thats ur best bet for a local hack like this. jus do a google search for keylogger or go to packetstormsecurity.org and read through the features of each one of them to see if they have what you need. This really shouldn't be that hard. good luck.

when you brothers not home, take the install disk and start it up in repair mode. copy C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\SAM to a disk
take LC4 to a friends house and use it there to find the password.

Thats why you use a laptop or a friends computer buddy!! or even better install linux and use that to grab the file, download knoppix mount the windows harddrive and then copy it change the attribs if needed and voila... then goto a friends house and install lc4 assuming u do have friends else just buy a new box and use that :p

yes. You need to be in repair mode. If you are running the computer you will not be able to access the file because it will be 'in use'. You need to start it in repair mode or take blackknights advice.

ahh, I 'm sorry I didn't post this earlier. I jus came across your message again. This will work on XP, never tried it on win 2k. I have to note that it will delete all the user information, including yours, but you will have administrator access.

- make a bootdisk.

- insert bootdisk and turn computer on

- at command prompt type "del C:\Windows\system32\config\SAM"

- reboot and log in using Administrator account without password

basically this just deletes the account information and reset all the usernames. if it doesn't work on win 2k do a search on ur HD for the SAM file. This really should work. Let me know if you're able to do it.

if u still wanna keep trying...how bout getting the SAM from the backup directory


I think this was what sinetific was telling u...anyway

When you use the NT Repair Utility (rdisk) with the /s argument to backup the important information regarding the system configuration to a floppy disk, then a compressed copy of the SAM data file will be created in the %systemroot%\repair directory under the filename: SAM._

you need to expand it before you can use it. expand the compressed back copy of the SAM using the following command:

C:\>expand sam._ sam

If you use the latest version of L0phtCrack, you need not go through the process of expanding the compressed backup copy of the SAM, as there is a built in option, which automatically does it for you.
