No, it's an encrypted file.  You cannot open and edit it with notepad, for example..

Yes, you can do that. You need to use LC4 for that.

when you open the program in wizard mode, select 'retrive from local machine' or open your sam file from the program directly. you will be amazed!!

sorry, i did not mention. It might not be legal to use this to crack another person's machine password. I hope you realize that. of course if you are using it to open your own sam file, it 's ok.
good luck!

Actually, LC5 is out - and owned by symantec now, if I'm not mistaken.  (They're buying everyone).

Although L0pht Crack - whenever I've run it, required Administrator privilages to run and only cracks the passwords, finding out what they are if they aren't too complex or if you let it run for days...

...true, the brute force  version of the password cracking can take days and you require a full version for that. Of course, if a person does not have administrative priveleges on a machine, he has no business running L0pht Crack, LC4 or LC5!
