    Hello Imortal. I Am Sorry For Wrong Wording.
    Yes I Tried Google. But I Found Nothing Except A File That Is Sam File.
    The Google Says That This The Main File In Which User Name And Passwords Are Kept.
    But The Problem Is That I Never Open , Nor Copy It.
    So Tell Me What Should I Do To Open It.

    Thanks

    k well There is no "password file" under Microsoft Windows NT/2000/XP. Microsoft Windows NT/2000/XP stores encrypted password hashes in the Windows Registry

    If you can access the Registry you can use PWDump by Jeremy Allison to view the password data.

    PWDump output consists of seven colon delimited fields


    Username
    User number
    Encrypted password
    LAN Man Password Hash
    Windows NT Password Hash
    Full Name and Description
    Home directory



    sample passwd entry: will:1000:30FA7B24C6108C5A8B4BCCA42D5816FF: B3823C82B43238D31BAF98FA4035255FWill Spencer, FAQ Author::

    Broken down, this password entry shows:
    Username will
    User number 1000
    Encrypted password 5fg63fhD3d5gh
    LAN Man Password Hash 30FA7B24C6108C5A8B4BCCA42D5816FF
    Windows NT Password Hash B3823C82B43238D31BAF98FA4035255F
    Full Name and Description Will Spencer, FAQ Author
    Home directory



    RDISK stores a compressed backup copy of the password hashes in %SystemRoot%\repair\sam._. If you can access this file, you may be able to restore it to another system and access the password information contained within it
