Default SAM File

hi. i'm just interested if there is a way to view and decrypt the SAM file.
ive already booted with a linux live cd and copied it onto the hard drive, but i cant find a decent decrypter. its not like i really care but its fun to **** off my brother every time he changes his password. go into his account and change some stuff, mess with his brain. mwah ha ha ha ha ha.

I don't condone such actions but you could use a boot cd and reset his account password to blank. Thats if you can follow the boot cd instructions

boot cd

John the ripper: not really, if the file is over 8 character and is complex, would take you very long, too long to wait IMO. Restting the password would be the method to go.

It's perfectly legal as long as it's in a professional envirnoment like a work place or you own the computer.

sorry i was mistaken. you still need to copy the sam file onto the hard drive using linux or something. then it will try and get the passwords.
