  2. Software & Hardware   -   #2
    I should know that because I had to extract my admin passwords from win2k a while ago but I can't remember the file now.

    this one will grab web passwords apparently and the S/N is from S2K

    Best I can do for now is this link from Microsoft. It won't allow you to see the actuall password, but you can change or delete them I think.

    Password List Editor> (win 95- 98 )

    Using Password List Editor
    If password caching is enabled, Windows 98 caches passwords in the password list file when you connect to a password-protected network resource. Password List Editor (Pwledit) lets you view the resources listed in a user's password list (PWL) file. It does not let you view the actual passwords, but lets you remove specific password entries if problems are encountered using a cached password.

    Password List Editor works only if the password list file is unlocked, that is, if the user is logged on. It can be used to view only the contents of the logged-on user's password list file, so you should run it on the user's computer.

    Note Only users themselves can view or edit their own PWL files.

    Password List Editor can be found in the Netadmin\Pwledit folder on the Windows 98 compact disc.

    To install Password List Editor
    In Control Panel, double-click Add/Remove Programs, click the Windows Setup tab, and then click Have Disk.
    In the Install From Disk dialog box, click Browse.
    Type the path name to Netadmin\Pwledit\Pwledit.inf, and then click OK.
    In the Have Disk dialog box, click Password List Editor, and then click Install.
    To run Password List Editor
    On the Start menu, click Run. Type pwledit, and then click OK.
    Using System Policies to Enforce Password Security
    You can use system policies to increase security by requiring users to follow specific password guidelines. Using system policies, you can enforce password policies.

    For information about restricting settings with system policies, see Chapter 8, "System Policies."

    When I remember the file name where the system passwords are stored I'll send it to you. It won't do much good either though because it's encrypted but you can delete it to get back into a locked system.
