It's my PC I know the Password. I have allready tested to reset it. And I have allready needed to reset a Windows Password. But now I want to crack it.

I have my Password in the Wordlist, but it don't work right. How long does it take to crack the whole wordlist?

If I type ./john dump-file john checks the wordlist?
