How to crack your Windows 7 password

Today I had to find out a user password for windows 7 laptop which was not encrypted.

Tools that are needed:
USB stick 1gb or more
Windows computer
Universal USB installer

Start by downloading Universal USB installer here:

Then download Ophcrack software from:
select ophcrack liveCD for vista / 7

In universal usb installer select ophcrack, locate livecd from your computer, select format and create. Instructions on the first link. It is very easy software to use. If you cant find your Ophcrack livecd from usb installer check that the name matches in usb installer software, if not then just rename the image file to match the installer.

After that put the stick on to the computer you want to crack and boot from usb. If the stick boots congratZ, select option 1 and continue. Now you see black screen with some text, write the text in quote marks and press enter, it starts to locate password tables and start cracking. When its finished it shows all the accounts and passwords.

Original instructions here: http://www.pendrivelinux.com/usb-ophcrack-windows-login-password-cracker/
Note that you don't need to download tables separately because now they have livecd option.
