Ever heard of Ophcrack? It'll crack alphanumeric Windows password from a live CD. I don't know how it all works, haven't had a reason to try it. It is for legal purposes only, for use on YOUR system. Any way around this? By the way, if you're stupid enough to try to break into someone else's system with the program, don't blame me when the FBI is at your door step. Just to let you know.
