Changing the administrator password on an NT/2k/XP box

A friend (honest) forgot their pwd recently and asked me to hack into their machine and change their admin pwd. I found the following really tasty application which does the trick.
The Offline Password and NT registry editor by Petter Nordahl-Haggen. This is a very useful utility which I’ve used in the past and which has proven very effective. There are bootable floppy and CD images on the site that you can use edit your windoze box’s passwords, stored in the reg’s SAM file. For more hints and tips check here. Merry Christmas and a happy new year to everyone…
