If you don't need access to the OS itself, just a few files, you don't need to go through much trouble at all. You can grab any Linux live CD and just drag-and drop files onto a USB hard drive, as you would in any other OS.
Full sizeHow It Works: Just download the live .iso file for any Linux distribution (like the ever-popular Ubuntu) and burn it to CD. Stick it in the computer you want to access and boot up from that CD. Pick "Try Ubuntu" when it comes up with the first menu, and it should take you right into a desktop environment. From here, you can access most of the hard drive just by going to the Places menu in the menu bar and choosing the Windows drive. It should see any NTFS drives just fine.
Note that depending on the permissions of some files, you might need root access. If you're having trouble viewing or copying some files, open up a terminal window (by going to Applications > Accessories > Terminal) and type in gksudo nautilus, leaving the password blank when prompted. You should now have access to everything.
How to Beat It: This method can give you access to the file system, but its main weakness is that the malicious user still can't access any encrypted files, even when using gksudo. So, if the owner of the computer (or you) has encrypted their files (or encrypted the entire OS), you won't get very far.
Sneaky Command-Line Fu: Reset the Password with the System Rescue CD
If you need access to the operating system itself, the Linux-based System Rescue CD is a good option for breaking in. You'll need to do a bit of command line work, but as long as you follow the instructions closely you should be fine. Hat tip to our friends at the How-To Geek.
How It Works: Just download the .iso filefor the System Rescue Live CD and burn it to disc. Boot from the disc and hit the default option when the blue screen comes up. After everything loads and you're presented with a command-line interface, type fdisk -l to see the drives and partitions on your computer. Pick the Windows partition (usually the largest NTFS partition) and note the name, e.g. /dev/sda3.
Then, run the following command:
ntfs-3g /dev/sda3 /mnt/windows -o force
Make sure to replace /dev/sda3 with the partition you noted earlier. Next, cd to your Windows/System32/config directory with this command:
We want to edit the SAM file in this folder, so type the following command to get a list of users:
chntpw -l SAM
Note the username you want to access, and then type the following command, replacingWhitson Gordon with the username in question.
chntpw -u "Whitson Gordon" SAM
At the next screen, choose the first option by typing the number 1 and hitting Enter. This will clear the user password, making it blank. When it asks you to write hive files, hit y and press Enter. It should say OK, and then you can type reboot to reboot the computer. When you boot into Windows, you'll be able to log in to that user's account without a password.
How to Beat It: Once again, the weakness of this method is that it still can't beat encryption. Changing the password will disallow you access to those encrypted files, which, if the user hasencrypted their entire OS, makes this method pretty useless. If they've only encrypted a few files, though, you'll still be able to access all the unencrypted stuff without a problem.
Brute Force: Crack the Password with Ophcrack
Where the other two methods are vulnerable to encryption, this method will give you full access to everything the user can access, including encrypted files, since this method relies on finding out the user's password instead of bypassing it.
How It Works: We've actually gone through this method before, but it doesn't hurt to have a refresher. All you need to do is download and burn the Ophcrack Live CD(use the Vista version if you're cracking a Windows 7 PC) and boot from it on your computer. It'll take a little bit of time to boot, but eventually it will bring you to a desktop environment and start attempting to crack passwords. This may take a while. You'll see the passwords pop up in the top pane of the window, though, when it finds them (or, if it doesn't find them, it'll notify you). You can then reboot and log in to Windows using those passwords.
