-Keep in mind that the time needed to crack password hashes with rainbow tables is proportional to the number of hashes loaded. With a brute force attack the cracking time is NOT dependant on the number of unsalted hashes loaded. That's why it's advisable to remove any unnecessary user account with the Delete button.

 <li>Number of threads: It allows you to set the number of threads the program will use and to enable or disable the brute force cracking. The number of threads should be set to the number of cores of the computer running ophcrack plus one. For example, for an old processor set the number of threads to 2, for a Core 2 Duo to 3 and for a Core 2 Quad to 5. If you change this value, you have to exit ophcrack and to restart it in order to save the change. If you don't exit and restart, the new number of threads will not be taken into account by the program.
 <li>Number of hash/redux per task: Every work that ophcrack does is separated in smaller tasks. This setting enables you to specify the length of one task. Depending on your hardware, using a smaller or larger value can enhance performances a little bit. 
 <li>Max length of the disk queue: In order to reduce the I/O impact on performance, ophcrack precomputes more tasks than what the harddisk can handle normally (when tables are not loaded in RAM). Setting this value to 50 will make ophcrack wait more on the harddisk. You should usually let it to 500.
-<li>Bruteforce: ophcrack cracks the hashes loaded using brute force up to 4 characters if this setting is enabled. It permits to speed up the cracking process since small passwords won't be searched in rainbow tables but bruteforced. The bruteforce is executed at the same time as the preloading.

 <li>Session file: You can specify a filename in this field by using the Choose button at the right of the field. If you enable the checkbox on the left, ophcrack will then automatically save the state of cracking in that file, every 30 seconds. If you later want to recover the status of your search, you can load your session file form the menu of the Load button and ophcrack will start the cracking in the same state in which you let it. 
 <li>Hide usernames: When sets to yes, Ophcrack will hide the user names you are going to crack. This option  may be useful when the auditor want to do an anonymous password strength assessment.
 <li>Audit mode: When sets to yes, the user name will be replaced by a number and the cracked password will not be showed. Furthermore, the time needed to crack this individual password, the password complexity and length will be showed in the Ophcrack main window.
