John Cracked Sam File - Unknown Users?
Posted 21 June 2012 - 07:56 AM
But I don't understand a couple of the accounts.
Now Administrator is obvious. But when I go to ControlPanel|Users it does not show Administrator. Is this because nothing about that account can be changed? (I am from the Linux world)
I am seeing Guest, and John says no password, and Users says the account is disabled. But I want to delete the account and XP won't let me. Why?
Then John finds another account that seems to be invisible: HelpAssistant. It has a long complex password, but WTH is it and why doesn't it show in Users?
Another invisible account is SUPPORT_388945a0, with NO password. What is this? This is disturbing.
And finally there is my user account. In Users it is showing as having admin privileges, but when I try to change my account type "Limited" is grayed out. How can I change my account type?
Do I have to edit the registry with the system shut down to do the things I want?

sounds like you are on vista or win7, those accounts are flagged as SpecialUserAccounts in the registry and dont show in cotrol panel and the logon screen
Those accounts are part of the Windows core components. Nothing to worry about them. best not delete/modify them. Also the Guest account, can be modified if you go into computer management, in the control panel under administrative tools. Note, that you will need to be logged in as the administrator if you plan on deleting or altering it.
