Where specifically is the USERID and PASSWORD held in the registry, and is it encrypted?

First, use REGEDT32 to give Administrators Read or Full Control permission to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SECURITY (by default Administrators don't even have Read permission here). This is where the security information is stored - accounts, groups & policies. After you refresh the screen, you will be able to see the structure of this portion of the registry. I couldn't find any clear-text passwords here.
