Extremely impressed at the ease and speed with which the Ophcrack Live CD cracked my Windows admin password when I tested it out last a few weeks ago, I thought it might be useful to throw together a quick guide detailing how to use this powerful little utility.

Whether you need to recover the lost password to a Windows account, you’re looking to ensure that you’re passwords are secure, or you’re a super l33t h4x0r, the Ophcrack Live CD is a pretty useful tool.
