    wrong ... completely wrong ..

    modified steps
    1. right click my computer
    2. click on manage
    3. go to local users and groups -> users
    4. right click administrator account -> set password

    if your restricted account doesnot allow you to open management console then go here

    but well well well ... i think i got it all wrong .. u just want to know the existing password

    Brute force & dictionary attack are Rubbish.
    Real Hackers know how to retrive password from the ######!
