The only way to truly protect the SAM is to have an encrypted file system (BitLocker, Trucrypt, etc).

Advice on how to hack/crack systems is not allowed on E-E.

Speaking generally: security of the SAM on a local workstation would not be a likely target of a hacker.  There are more ingenious methods (social engineering, keyloggers, man-in-the-middle, etc) that would provide more fruitful.
