Sesame Windows Password Recovery

CNET Editors' review

This simple Windows password cracker is for those with a lot of time who are willing to put in a lot of effort. Sesame Windows Password Recovery's very simple interface is merely a list of names and passwords...if they're found.

Operating this app isn't difficult. However, setup can be a chore. The files needed to discover passwords aren't easy to access. The SAM and SYSTEM Registry files needed aren't accessible while Windows is running. The publisher suggests you remove your drive and place it in a second machine to copy the files. Then simply use the app to inject your own passwords into the user accounts. Yes, this app not only discovers passwords, it can replace them. Applying changes takes just a few key presses and a mouse click.

It's much more difficult to discover passwords. The publisher warns users it could take days of brute-force decryption to uncover the passwords. The demo restricts password display to seven characters, and doesn't allow users to save modified SAM files to inject new passwords. If you're comfortable removing hard drives, altering the Windows Registry, and don't mind a wait, then Sesame Windows Password Recovery might fit your password-cracking needs.
