    Cain on the Go?

    I have just gotten to familiarize my self with the magnificent Cain and Abel program and i was wondering if anyone knew a way to install it on a removable storage device like a thumbdrive. I don't want to be installing on every machine i wanna use it on. If anyone could help or steer me towards a site taht explains how I'd greatly appreciate it.

    Why would you want a password sniffer? Beyond that, why would you want a portable version of one?

    It needs ot be installed on the OS in question, no way around it.

    You can copy the files to a thumb drive and make a .reg file that imports all the cain registry keys... maybe?

    Maybe, but it still requires winpcap to be installed...

    Maybe it would be better to just create BartPE on a bootable USB drive. There is a cain and abel plugin as well as a winpcap plugin.

    If you've never created anything like this... then it might be more work than your willing to put into it.
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    or, if the thumbdrive is big enough, you can make an image of a really stripped down version of xp with your progs loaded and just launch it with qemu. then you could run in the current environment in case your situation doesn't favor booting up a livecd.

    not sure how great the emulation is with windows hosts, i only use it with linux livecd's.
