Until you give a LOT more details, you'll get squat from here.
Asking for advice / assistance to utilise 'nasties' in windows is NOT the best way to introduce yourself.
So, please add as much detail as you can viz-a-vie the whys and wherefores for this 'project' and maybe you'll get some help. Just don't hold your breath ........
You have given NO details in your profile, so, until you prove yourself, you might have to learn to fly this baby solo

You must spread your AntiPoints around before giving it to Nokia again.
lol - I guess I still don't get the question? Whats hard about typing "john" with the proper switches?

There are at least two tutorials on this site that give detailed instructions on not only how to use JTR, but how to extract the password hash. Do a search, give them a try, and come back with specific troubles.
