u could boot from live cd (erd commander) and try to run PwDump 7 to the the NTLM hash (coz LM is disabled), the use MDCrack 1.8 to crack it (or rainbow tables).

There are a lot of Windows password revealers and crackers available, but I’ve found that Windows Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
it not only supports XP, 2003, 2000, and NT, I have personally tested it with Vista Home Premium and Ultimate. It works perfectly to reset any local user account to a blank password

You can use the ISO to burn a boot CD. Follow these instructions:

1. Download ISO file from http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com Windows Password Recovery Tool
2. Burn to a CD using a CD burning tool such as Nero or Roxio or MagicISO
3. Insert CD into drive and reboot.
4. You may have to select an option in the BIOS to get the computer to boot from the CD.

Booting up and clearing a password takes a minute or two works like a charm.

I know this thread falls under the category of "f***ing old," but I figured I'd throw this in the mix.

It's an ISO image you burn to a CD. It works, I've used it on an XP workstation before. Oh, and it's free.
I should also mention it doesn't reveal the password, just lets you re-set it.

If you just need to get in, you can use kon-boot to let you in without entering a pass, but that won't let you recover or change the password that's set.

Best program to reset a windows pass is Offline NT Editor. It can also be found in Hiren's Boot CD. It works with everything up to, and including win7.

Windows 2000/xp/2003/vista/win7 passwords are easy to be recovered. Many password tools can recover lost windows password quickly and easily, such as Offline NT Password and Windows Password Rescuer.
