Recently I run into a locked down laptop with Windows 10 OS (actually I guess it was updated from Windows 7 if that matters). My collegue was using this computer some time ago and lost his login and password, so now we can't log into this computer.
Of course we are able to boot it from external drive and copy all the necesary data, so that's not a problem.
I remembered myself about old popular trick with switching cmd.exe with Utilman.exe (or osk.exe or sethc.exe) to run cmd and change user password. But when I tried to do this (I run the cmd from system repair utilities) I actually couldn't find those files to switch them with cmd.exe. There was no utilman.exe, no osk.exe, no sethc.exe in Windows/system32/ nor other catalogs.
I also tried this tutorial with manipulating registry with no effects.
So I'm wondering if this Windows vulnerabilities were fixed? Or maybe these tools that show up on login screen are hidden or loaded in a different way now?
