they're protected so you can't just copy the files. i haven't done any windows password cracking in years, but two methods that may work would be either A) using kon-boot to do something as admin that would allow you to read the files or B) boot into a linux live CD to copy the files for later cracking.

keep in mind though that i'm sure i'm missing something here, so you'll want to do some more footwork to figure out exactly what you need to do.

a live ubutu disk would allow you to copy the sam files to a flash drive.

What I use tho is hirens boot cd 9.9 or 10.2 with minixp and copy them to a network share or a flash drive.
