Were any errors reported by FgDump (use -v -v for greater verbosity)?
What AV product is running on the host? FgDump attempts to halt any
running AV product prior to extracting the password hashes, but not all
products or configurations are currently supported.

FWIW, setting the "Do Not Store LM Hashes" policies does not
retroactively remove the values. A password change, or multiple changes
if password history is being used, is needed to flush out the hashes.
Tools such as ThrashLM may also work to remove the LM values.
