    there are a few programs that do that.... i had one for a while ( ithink it was called like crossfire or something.... the icon for it was a target) and that worked alright.... but what was your reason for wanting a program like that? over all they aren't really useful unless you are trying to snoop on someone who put in there pass and didn't click o/k.... (which is still generally useless)

    There is this wonderfull little program called "I forgot" wich will unhide the asterixes.
    It saved me lots of times when the password was still stored but for instance I wanted to do a format and didn't remember those passwords.

    The encrypted password is stored in the SAM file located in /SYSTEM_FOLDER/system32/.

    To crack that password you can get Knoppix STD and open the SAM cracker.

    if the password was in a cookie, wouldnt it be stored in some kind of hash? how would you know when you've found it and how would you go about decrypting it if you could find it? does JtR have a cookie mode or something?
