Here is a page with some resources. Frankly, cracking the password is about the hardest thing to do. It is so much easier to reset it or even bypass it all together.

Good luck

The resource page you gave claims that Ophcrack works on Win7. I'm trusting this... Thanks. – Moshe Jan 11 '10 at 0:52

The Offline NT Password and Registry Editor is my tool of choice for jobs like this.

clear/reset any user account password on windows machines (any version from NT4 to Windows 7), this can be done with the owners consent if they forgot the password.

if you're looking for software that allows for cracking/retrieving passwords with bruteforce (so the rightful owner may not find out that the account has been compromised), this is a rather sinister approach and the use of such programs is illegal in many countries.

You hit the nail on the head. The 'victim' shouldn't know about the compromise. Yes, sinister. – Moshe Jan 11 '10 at 0:53
well, if you don't mind, i prefer not to assist in such activity, nevermind engaging. my powers can only be used for good. :) – Molly7244 Jan 11 '10 at 0:57
