Basically i have a computer that is dual booted with Windows 7 and Ubuntu. On the windows 7 side I do not have admin control. However on the Ubuntu side I have full control. So I want to know how can I find out the Username and Password of a wifi that the windows side has saved. On the Ubuntu side i have free range over the Windows C drive

  • Get something like Hiren's boot CD and burn it from ubuntu or windows

  • Boot into the environment to Reset the admin account or add a new administrator account using this hack directly from within Ubuntu.

  • Boot into Windows and Log in with your newly created or reset account

  • Download and run THIS software from Nirsoft as administrator under Windows 7.

  • You should now have the password.

Hope that helps
