Password Recovery

is there anyway to find out your admin password without changing it? I even tried Ophcrack and all i got was a NT hash code but i have no idea how to decode/decrypt it..

the code: d5a11e58ebc09b7a5f7378502f08cb47


Can anyone find out what it means or recover my password some other way?

I don't think so, the password file within Windows is heavily encrypted and near impossible to decrypt (without knowing the password of cause).

I would recommend using a tool such as Help and Support on RecoverAnyPassword.com which will change the password, but at least you can login.

Hello Hassassin,

Sorry, we can help you reset the password to be able to change it if you forgot what it is.

However, we cannot help you see what a current password is since that is the same as cracking it and could be used for illegal purposes.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
