Forgot Administrator password? Or is that you just wished to access the system with Admin privileges, you can break into the system without even feeling the need to change the password. If you want to reset the password, refer to my earlier post “Break or Reset Administrator password in XP”.
Knowing XP or even Vista’s Administrator password is easy and using this trick I was able to use my college’s computers with Admin rights even without changing the original set passwords 🙂
To reveal the original set password what all you need is just an iso image of Ophcrack (download it from here). This tool is so powerful that it can reveal almost any kind of password within 5 minutes. This password cracker works on rainbow tables and is available for both XP and Vista.
1. Burn the image on to the CD.
2. Boot the system from this CD.
3. Rest it will take care of itself.
The only disadvantage of this tool is that it is quite large in size (around 450 MB), but it’s still worth downloading. It can both be used for good and bad purposes which I leave it on you.
