been using autoadmin logon for my w2k system for some time now and suddenly just wanted to know my password.
you know what it's like.
what you don't need, you forget.

so, as I remembered that it was in registry, I went for the value but it wasn't there.
like, it should be in: "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon"

in plain sight as "DefaultPassword"


well, I bet this is again some MS kinda idea about "hiding" the problem is fixing the problem thing.
in english, some of those stupid ms hotfixes has installed something on my system that now hides the password from me.

found something suspicious in:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SECURITY\Policy\Secrets\DefaultPassword\CurrVal

anyways, does any of you guys know what this hide thing is all about?

I surely will not change/reset my password just because MS wants me to.
