I'm in the process of learning about Windows passwords and experimenting on how to extract them using different tools like Ophcrack and Offline NT Password and Registry Editor. I've started with Windows XP because its the easiest. I can successfully run Ophcrack on a Windows XP computer and it will list some user account names and passwords. The thing I can't figure out is that it doesn't list all the account names I know are on the computer, either local or domain account names. I thought all account names, either local or domain are stored in the local SAM file so you could login offline. Does anyone know why I'm missing some account names when I run either tool? I haven't tried this on a Windows 7 computer so I don't know if its just this one XP machine that's doing this. Thanks
