Setting up syskey security

The Syskey utility, also called the SAM lock tool, is a built-in Windows tool that allows you to secure the Security Accounts Management (SAM) Database. It can be helpful for preventing hackers from cracking Windows passwords, and it is also a way to stop some cleaning lady cracks.

The SAM database is part of the Windows Registry and stores information about user accounts such as user names and password hashes. The corresponding Registry file is located in c:\windows\system32\config. Since Windows NT 4 SP3, the SAM file is partly encrypted. The SysKey utility allows you to move the SAM encryption key off the computer and/or configure a startup password.

Using Syskey utility:

1)Type syskey in the search box and hit enter.

















 2)This type of screen will be displayed.Click on Update option.

























3)There are Two options:

a)Password Startup-->This will store the syskey password on your computer only.Just you have to type the syskey password everytime you log into your computer.

b)System Generated Password-->This will store the syskey password on a floppy disk or a pendrive.Then you just have to insert that pendrive or floppy disk into your computer everytime you log into your computer.

I will go with the first option,Password Startup.
Type the password you want to keep and click on the OK option.

Remember: Once you enabled syskey utility then you can never disable it until you install Windows again.
