  • Offline NT Password & Registry Editor

    Windows stores its user information, including crypted versions of the passwords, in a file called 'sam', usually found in \windows\system32\config. This file is a part of the registry, in a binary format previously undocumented, and not easily accessible. But thanks to a German(?) named B.D, I've now made a program that understands the registry. This site provides CD and floppy images for end users to easily edit their forgotten passwords.
