    Password retrieve

    Hi all

    Got abit of a problem. I know I always do yes ... however: make a internet connection in XP SP2 the normal way. However I have forgotten the password and need to use the account for another computer. The password is already inserted so therefore it must be stored somewhere. I was thinking somewhere in reg or hidden in the system files.

    Any comments on how to retrieve this.

    There are many programs that will unmask the ******** password fields. 12 ghost has a security feature pack that will do this. Also, there is one program in particular that grabs those passwords I believe it's called Advanced Password Recovery- but costs a pretty penny. Here are some sites that have programs that will recover all sorts of stuff. http://www.crackpassword.com/
