    Version 3.6 didn't work for me (refused to load tables from LiveCD, USB stick, or anywhere else I tried), but 3.4 works perfectly. Recommend anyone having trouble with 3.6 to get hold of the older version

    While I've used previous versions of Ophcrack with success on XP, the Ophcrack 3.6 live disk failed to crack passwords for Windows 7 Professional. I also installed the 64 bit version, then selected and downloaded the available Vista tables (since no free Windows 7 tables were available), and it also failed to crack passwords on Windows 7 Pro.

    I have been trying to use this program for about a month now. I tried burning it to a cd and booting up my laptop. It doesnt register. It just loads windows. It takes a minute longer to load to log in screen but thats it. If i log in, it picks the cd up as "Ophcrack livecd". I then tried it on usb. Downloaded usbboot, copied/burned ophcrack to the 8gb usb(fat32). The system sees the usb as "ophcrack livecd". i restart, open boot menu, select the usb and still nothing. It loads windows. I have ophcrack v3.6.0. I am running Windows 7 ultimate. Why is it not working? Im so sure i have done everything 100%. Please help.

    I am having a problem using this version 3.6.0. When I boot this live cd it does not load the tables. It only apply brute force attack. I have used version 3.4.0 before and checked passwords of windows 7 on three systems. 2 were found and on one PC this live cd didnot showed any passwords. Then I tried this latest version 3.6.0 but it is not loading any tables to find the password. So I need help about this problem. What I can do to load the tables? Need help !!!!

    I got the LIVE disc and burned it to CDR. After one try with "automated," on Windows XP Professional, I clicked on the link to reveal the password. It said, "file not found." Fortunately, the program did show that the Administrator account had no password set at all, so I used the info to log in and reset my account's password. Everyone should know that I didn't spend ANY time on the issue and only read about 2% of what the program had to offer. I zipped on through and decided it would be much faster to use what I learned from OPHCRACK to choose the Administrator login route. <br><br>This program probably works. Thanks!

    I am trying to recover the admin PW on my windows 7 desktop. I successfully booted from a CD with the ISO on it, but it did not recover any passwords. It took me to an orange desktop and asked me to choose a partition, I tried both and neither recovered anything... did I do it wrong? Then I tried doing it w/ the install version but it asks for a hash. I don't understand how I am supposed to provide a hash for the password if I don't know what the password is.....

    I burned the LiveCD to USB with Rufus, but my computer always says that the boot drive failed. I am trying to get into a Windows 8 machine.

    Yeah! I agree with you. Ophcrack is a great free reset tool. But sometimes it can't guarantee my data's security. So for the security of your data, you can use another tool named Windows Password Killer. More details you can download Windows Password Killer in Google. Hope it can help you. Good luck!

    It worked great! Thank you! However, the CD with the ISO software did not initially do anything when I booted up my computer. So I had to hit F2 when I booted up, and turn off the "fastboot" option, then followed the instructions to have the PC boot up from the CD. Just mentioning that, in case someone else experiences the same issue.

    I got the latest version of ophcrack LiveCD for windows 7 to recover my password, should I ever have to. However, even booting it in Graphic mode, it does not boot into a desktop setting. Instead it is still completely text-based. Likely it does not recognize my graphics card. However, even in text mode it does not display my passwords, instead only displaying a row of dots. it does, however, display hashes for the passwords. But hashes don't actually give me passwords. I'm currently running a 2012 HP build with the most up to date version of windows 7 Home Premium.

    ophcrack Vista/7 LiveCD ophcrack-vista-livecd-3.6.0.iso I downloaded this iso, and after putting it on USB by YUMI, it booted to its default program. But it failed to show the password for Win7. On the other hand it worked with XP. So i am wondering if could be a fix for ophcrack Vista/7 LiveCD . That would work. Thank you.

    I created 3 different bootable USB sticks - using "tazusb.exe" - 4GB, 8GB and 16GB. I also added it to my YUMI USB stick which has lots of .ISOs on it that all work. None of them booted ophcrack. Two of them just displayed one line... something about Linux and a name like "Aaron", and one of them just showed a blinking cursor at the top of a blank screen. I tried all of them on a Netbook and my new Desktop. Total failure. I also burnt a CD. It didn't boot either. Fortunately, I read someone else's comment about "Hiren's Boot CD" (thank you, "dahoppsrno1"!). That has a utility on it to clear passwords and it works.

    This software rocks!!! It's just recovered my lost login password with hardly any effort and no fuss. For the past year I've been using a fingerprint reader to logon to my laptop. After many "too slow" or "Too fast" comments while trying to use the device, I decided to uninstall it. On rebooting I was met with the password screen, but what was the password???? After much shouting and hair pulling, a friend told me about Ophcrack. So I downloaded the iso file, burnt it to CD and inserted into the drive of my password protected laptop. A few minutes later i'm looking at my lost password. Yesssss. Nuff said It works.

    I just purchased the password kit and after starting from the CD it says it did not find an operating system on my hard drive. Now what do I do? Oh course this was not one of the FAQ. Can anyone help me. Thanks

    I use Spotmau to crack admin passwords on machines I repair. Not even Hirens is as comfortable to use.

    Hey kaywat716, download Hirens ISO. It has pwd reset tools for any account. Interesting tool, but even using the largest table, unable to crack my Upper and lower case alpha-numeric with special character password. I imagine testing the security etc of passwords can be useful, yet resetting takes minutes.

    I have Windows 7; I forgot my password & I'm the administrator on the computer. This program is supposed to unlock the account for you or crack the password, isn't it, or am I confused? This is, I believe, the third program of this type I have tried. Everything starts fine, downloads quick, but when I go to "run" the program, it, on all three programs, asks me for the administrators password. I do not have the password which is exactly why I am trying to use the program in the first place! I'm just so confused. Am I doing something wrong? Or does this program just not do what I think it does? SOMEONE, please help me.

    I tested it using a custom win32 (MinGW) build and an OS X build and it worked great. Took exactly 1-3 seconds to recover passwords from hashes
