Default Domain Password Validation

Is there anyway to validate a password on a Domain? via Visual Basic.

I've already searched all the web after this, I can already get the Logged in user, but not the password(even if it's encrypted), thank you.

Using APIs you can get all sort of info. Try NetUserGetInfo and go from there. You'll have alot of reading ahead.

Not sure what you want to do exactly but there is no way to retrieve the user's password. Any program out there that 'retrieves' lost password is actually hacking it.

There are many ways to authenticate a user/password against the domain/server. Try 'impersonate'. I forget the exact API. Look for it in platform SDK: Security
