So far, this article has focused on cracking the Windows logon password. However, there are many applications that maintain their own passwords. If you require administrative access to such applications, you must know the application-level password. The problem is that these types of passwords are easily forgotten because they tend to be used so infrequently. There are lots of specialized crackers available on the Web for cracking all sorts of different applications' passwords. However, there is one general cracking utility that recently caught my eye.

Password Recovery XP from iOpus can recover just about any password that‘«÷s masked by asterisks. While there are lots of utilities that can reveal these types of passwords, Microsoft recently changed its password-encoding scheme. That means that the vast majority of password crackers designed to crack masked passwords will only work in pre-Windows XP environments. Password Recovery XP is designed specifically to work with virtually all versions of Windows.

Password Recovery XP has minimal system requirements. On a hardware level, Password Recovery XP requires a 486 or higher processor and 1 MB of hard disk space. The utility is equally lenient on the operating system. Password Recovery XP supports Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000, and XP.

You can download a copy of Password Recovery XP from the iOpus Web site. The URL that I‘«÷ve just provided allows you to either download a free trial of the software or buy the full version. The free trial will reveal only the first three characters of the password. Although three characters may not always be enough to help you guess the passwords stored on an unfamiliar system, the free trial version will at least show you whether the software will work on your system before you shell out the money for the full version.

If you choose to purchase the full version, the price is $29.95 plus $7.99 for shipping and handling, if you want the software on CD-ROM. Before you purchase the software though, be advised that the license is based on the machine rather than on the user. This means that a support tech would need to buy a separate copy for every machine that he or she planned on using the software with, in order to stay legal.

Using the software is extremely simple. The download arrives in the form of a self-extracting executable file, and the installation process is almost completely automated. Once the software has been installed onto a machine, you can run it by selecting the iOpus Password Recovery XP command from the Start | All Programs | iOpus Password Recovery XP menu.
To Be continued 2/3
