Cain & Abel is excellent software if you know what you are doing, it's been around a long time and has an excellent reputation amongst users who know what it does and who've a need for it. It's always one of the early installs on my machine.

You either know what LSA Secrets and such are or you do not, and clearly the previous two reviewers do not! If you fall into this category then simply don't bother downloading or reviewing the software and wasting our time.

Cain & Abel's intrinsic operation/function almost by definition will attract the attention of cruddy antivirus and internet security suites--those ones whose developers either haven't done their homework and or who don't think you should have such software on your PC (because your boss etc. might think you're up to no good).

Cain & Abel attracts the same old hoary problems from AV and security software that NirSoft has with NirLauncher and Arne Vidstrom has with his utilities. Knowledgeable users either ignore the warnings or use better AV products.

(TIP: I regularly have to test antivirus software so I assume they're going to attack many of my perfectly legit virus-free but vulnerable utilities, so as a precaution I simply encrypt their directories from the context menu with say Axantum's AxCrypt using a simple easily-remembered password.

This effectively screws up any signature that the AV software is looking for. I also do the same with directories containing test viruses (i.e. the latest viral crud that we can find). The master virus directory always remains encrypted which protects the viruses, a copy is made and decrypted then the effectiveness of the AV software is determined.)

The concept itself is retarded. Moreover the site appears to be malicious.
A break to civilization.
