I don't know. But if it *was* possible, what would be password's use? I mean, if there's a (legal) tool, such as Oracle Forms, which is capable of detecting operating system password, you wouldn't even need the password.

What do you plan to do with it, anyway?

Definetely not possible.

The Windows password, just as the UNIX password (and just like any decent system should do it) is not stored anywhere. Only the hash Value of the password is stored on the login server, and compared to the hash value of any entered password during the login.
