Hi, I have an user with a Win ME notebook and he cant find his Admin password.
I tried offcrack, Bart boot disk and I cant get it unlocked.
Do you know of a product I can use for Win Me and where are the passwords stored in me
ie  System32?

Windows ME doesn't really need the password to be entered. Just press the ESC key when you are asked for it, and you should get into the OS. Once inside delete the "username.pwl" (probably inside the windows directory), and then the PW will have been deleted. After that you can create a new one. But as you'll have seen, there is no added security with a password on ME.
