The page http://pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/ was blocked by the toolbar (possible to continue by clicking a button). Well-known website since many years. It has a program to overwrite passwords for Windows' accounts. Very nice to have when a password is forgotten.

Hi Cecilia!
The URL you've mentioned leads to the page with the hacktool, which can harm an ordinary user in case of unproper use. Currently it is blocked by both Lavasoft toolbar and Ad-Aware engine.

Best regards,
Alex

Thanks Alex,

If you think that your customers should be protected from downloading a tool that can change Windows passwords, you should block these pages as well:
http://forgottenpass...rator-password/
http://www.openwall.com/john/
http://www.recoveran...ssword-windows/
http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/ This "CD" contains the program that you can download from http://pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/ and other tools that can destroy a lot more (for example partition and wiping programs).
