    You need admin level access to use PWDump.  So, you can do a few things
    depending on the config of the remote box.
    There is a cool tool, also written by Todd Sabin author of PWDump called
    HK which works great to elevate your privleges.  Simply exploit Unicode to
    upload HK to the directory you are dumping your tools in.  Read the doc
    with HK to understand the usage but it works great on NT 4.0 boxes.
    Or, you can go to and grab a cool .asp that apparently
    exploits some .asp vulnerability that launches your code in system
    context.  I haven't tested the .asp yet so I can't say too much about it.
    You can also attempt to grab the sam._ from the \winnt\repair directory.
