    we'll wouldnt we all like to know that one

    generally your not recommended to 'retrieve' passwords but rather prompt for them.

    If there was a way to programmatically get an admin password or admin rights then the hackers would be all over it and there would be little point of having the passwords in the first place. In fact, NT/2k/XP doesn't even store the passwords on the machine, it merely saves the hashes and when a user enters a password it compares the hash for that password against the one that is stored in the SAM file.
