    Surely he needs to be able to login to Vista in order to do this?

    OP - can you clarify at which point you're being asked for the password (power-on, vista etc)?

    neither worked. Its not in the boot menu and the other one was for removing the password if you knew it.

    But both repped for input thanks

    Create a boot disc :

    This will do the job

    Yes, can confirm it works on windows vista, xp and mac

    Not sure if it is a byproduct of the way it works but Norton flags this up as a dodgy file_beware.

    can you not press f8 and boot to safe mode, access the administrator account and reset other passwords?

    OPHcrack does work.

    OPHcrack does work.



    It does, I have personally tired it (worked on over 4 different pcs). Maybe you used it wrong?

    I was agreeing with you!
    I know it works I have used it on Vista and on XP - different versions obviously!
    :-D

    I used to use l0pht back in the day - is OPHcrack an evolved version?
