Yep... works great on recovering forgotten or lost passwords.

Here are some ophcrack stats:

I.3 seconds for a simple dictionary word to be broken on a admin account. (uh... happened so fast, I didn't realize ophcrack had finished)

A little over 3 minutes for a word with numbers on the end. I was logging on to the user's account and backing up within 10 minutes.

A must for any computer support toolbox.

Best regards,

Everyone: Try to update the subject of outgoing emails, when possible and topics change, to keep to keep things visibly relevant.
