Hack administrator from Guest account.

Ever wanted to hack your college pc with guest account/student account so that you can download with full speed Hack Administrator !!!!there ? or just wanted to hack your friend’s pc to make him gawk when you tell your success story of hacking ? well,there is a great way of hacking an administrator account from a guest account by which you can reset the  administrator password and getting all the privilages an administrator enjoys on windows..Interested ? read on…


Press shift key 5 times and the sticky key dialog shows up.This works even at the logon screen. But If we replace the sethc.exe which is responsible for the sticky key dialog,with cmd.exe, and then call sethc.exe by pressing shift key 5 times at logon screen,we will get a command prompt with administrator privilages because no user has logged on. From there we can hack the administrator password,even from a guest account.


Guest account with write access to system 32.

Here is how to do that -

  • Go to C:/windows/system32
  • Copy cmd.exe and paste it on desktop
  • rename cmd.exe to sethc.exe
  • Copy the new sethc.exe to system 32,when windows asks for overwriting the file,then click yes.

When asked to overwrite,overwrite the sethc.exe - rdhacker.blogspot.com

  • Now Log out from your guest account and at the user select window,press shift key 5 times.
  • Instead of Sticky Key confirmation dialog,command prompt with full administrator privileges will open.

Press shift key 5 times and command prompt will open - rdhacker.blogspot.com

  • Now type “ NET USER ADMINISTRATOR aaa” where “aaa” can be any password you like and press enter.
  • You will see “ The Command completed successfully” and then exit the command prompt and login into administrator with your new password.
  • Congrats You have hacked admin from guest account.


Also, you can further create a new user at the command prompt by typing “NET USER XERO /ADD” where “XERO” is the username you would like to add with administrator privileges. Then hide your newly created admin account by -

Go to registry editor and navigate to this key

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\SpecialAccounts\UserList]

Here create a new DWORD value, write its name as the “user name” that u created for your admin account and live with your admin account forever :)

I hope that was informative..

u even dont need to change the admin password.
type "explorer" at the command prompt and the windows will start with full administrator privileges.

I don't think that is a WOW Hack, cause' if your user was from USER's Group, Your won't replace that executable.....

Then, in your example, the user that replace the executable is a administrator user too...

:S so bad

Lemme correct you at 2 places-
1> This hack was done using a user account.This hack works on 30% on windows installations which are unconfigured using cacls commands,which i found at the time of writing were quite dominant in my college campus.

2> u are right,most of xp systems today donot allow to replace the system32 files,but then all the hacks which work on active windows like the screensaver hack and startup one, will fail to work,it will only work when the condition 1 becomes true.Then the only way to bypass a windows password will be to use a bootable disc solution to my knowledge.

In that case i keep my usb drive ready.

In order to replace "sethc" with "cmd" I need administrator privilages can you help me out? also on the off chance I get the adimin to put in that password, is there any command that can turn my current user account into an admin privilages one instead of making a new one? The admin's not dumb enough to the point of where they won't suspect their password not working or a brand new user :P
