Normally use 'Cain and Abel', but Ophcrack makes it easy by downloading a bootable ISO file that you can just burn to a cd, without all the 'autorun' preparation you would have to do with 'Cain'. Haven't actually tested against any LM or NTLM hashes, so I don't know how good its passy library is or how fast its brute force attack is, but if you want to save the hassle, this is the way to go. Its also not as diverse as 'Cain and Abel', no WEP crack or anything of the sort. Remember, for legal purposes only ;).
