that only a) helps beforehand, and b) if someone else finds the diskette they can use it against you.

So have you tried the Offline NT Password & Registry Editor? It is the chntpw program you want, and it comes on a boot floppy or CD.

yeah, another disc that can do it easily as well is EBCD. I think EBCD is my personal favorite.

The best way to crack any Windows password is by getting the Ophtcrack bootable cd and boot your computer with the disk in your CD-ROM. It is totally automatic. Let it run its course and when it's done you will have a list of each user's password.

Talking You Could Blank the Password

The Ultmate Boot CD includes the Offline NT Password editior and it will allow you to blank the password. And you can load sata drivers if nessary. And since it was written for NT it will read NTFS.
