    are u the owner of that pc ?
    or a stalker ?
    why keep password so protected that they are protected from yourself .

    brother you just cant delete sam file while using windows

    is your partition fat23 based ? yes there is a simple solution
    boot from external sources i.e bootable floppies, cd's (i.e win98) and then delete the sam file

    else if NTFS based try recovery console (u cant as u forgotten admin pass )
    or download the file below burn it on cd(after unzipping it. its an iso, dont jus copy it to the cd but choose burn image option instead), boot from it and reset the admin password http://download2.lsoft.net/boot-cd-iso.zip
    Computers are like Air Conditoners, thet stop working properly when u open WINDOWS.

    Aray atleast read the thread before replying ..
    SAM files are MD5 hashed files for storing passwords in Windows .. If you've got a Limited User account you cannot delete it (and nobody should help you in "cracking" it .. )
    MD5 cannot be bruteforce cracked .. So dont try your luck .. you are out of it ..
