Hi all users, here is a new exploit for bypassing windows 7 admin security which requires no CDs or other third party tools. I don't know if its been patched or not, but I'm sure that it 100% works.

7. The message should change to "Attempting repairs" within a few minutes.
8. Leave the computer running. This message should be there for 10-40 minutes depending on your computer.
9. After 10-40mins a message should pop up that says "start up repair could not fix the problem". Click the arrow next to "show problem details".
10. Scroll to the bottom and click the link to the .txt file.
11. Notepad should open up with the file.
12. In notepad click File->Open.
13. You can now use the file browser to perform the sethc.exe hack.
