ITSib :

after the file download complete .

http://www.softsea.com/download/Free-ISO-Burner.html

ITSib :

Yes that is the file

ITSib :

Using free iso burner to burn the downloaded .iso image to a CD / DVD

ITSib :

then put the disk onto the problematic computer having windows 7

ITSib :

When Ophcrack starts, it gathers information about all the Windows 7 user accounts, and begins to recover the passwords for each account, automatically. The software can take from a few seconds to a few minutes to guess (crack) the password XXXXX on the number of user accounts and the complexity of the password.

JACUSTOMER-7vjdieys- :

is it true that I could just drop that file to the cd in windows explorer?

JACUSTOMER-7vjdieys- :

and it will burn it

ITSib :

no

ITSib :

use free iso burner to burn the iso file

JACUSTOMER-7vjdieys- :

why?

ITSib :

as I have mentioned above

JACUSTOMER-7vjdieys- :

what's the difference

ITSib :

because it is a image file

ITSib :

not a data file
