    I downloaded the ISO for a password cracker: http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=133599&package_id=167699. Unable to crack with brute force. Used http://home.eunet.no/pnordahl/ntpasswd/ registry crack to set password to blank. Windows Vista Restore virus discovered as soon as I booted into Windows. I used Kasperky Rescue Disk to remove 41 trojan viruses and a rootkit. When I logged in again, I updated the McAfee antivirus software and ran a full scan. Subsequently, I needed to run scads of updates because the machine had been dormant for a couple of years.
