I am really new to this site but I thought that it was a very good place to start to solve the dilemna that I have. I have a laptop running on windows vista platform and it was lent out a little while back to one of my cousins. At the time, there was no password stored to log into the cp. Now that I have gotten my cp back, it is now asking for a password and noone seems to know the password. I am not sure if someone came over and was fooing around with it and stored a password on purpose or accident but I do know that I can no longer log into the cp at all. I do not want to use the disk that came with the software because this would cause me to lose alot of information that I have stored on the cp so I am really looking to alternatives for this problem. I have gotten the NT hash for the password but have not been able to decode it. If there is any way that someone can help me to decode this hash, it would be extremely appreciated. Thanks in advance to anyone that can help me out.
