NegativeSpace Posted December 6, 2011 Share Posted December 6, 2011 (edited) So I have a friends Vista (Basic!!!WTF?) laptop. She gave it to me because she forgot her password. It's a perfectly fine, working condition machine, and even has a working guest account. I want to crack her admin level account password, rather than resetting it, mostly because i've not done it before. ophcrack live gives blinking _, even after using several different iso writers. It's possible that the op drive doesn't work. I haven't tried a bootable USB for ophcrack. Should I try a bootable USB (something which I will have to learn to do)? Should I use something else to crack the password? Should I forget it and just reset the damn thing? Congrats for coming this far, considering all of the other threads and google results already in existence. Ten dollars to the paypal account of the first person to give me exact specific instructions that result in me knowing the password without spending any more than the ten dollars ill give you, or more than about an hour. By the way, I am a grown man with self respect, and so I have no desire to steal anything, much less a Vista password that I would just as soon smash with my TIBAR (if only it physically existed!). When I said that I have a friends computer to crack her password, it's because she gave it to me and asked me to crack her password. I think this is gonna be fun! Update: Optical drive does not work. Another update: Just realized I should have titled this thread "Ophcrack LIVE no go"..... Edited December 6, 2011 by NegativeSpace Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
