The newest version of this popular password recovery utility decrypts and displays the passwords behind the asterisks on ALL Windows systems. It works automatically on Web pages, Windows 9x/NT and Windows 2000/XP systems.
Windows systems allow a convenient storage of frequently used passwords, such as the password of your dial-in ISP, Outlook Express email or FTP connection. However, since you no longer enter the saved passwords manually, you tend to forget them. What are you to do when you need to know one of the saved passwords? The password is staring right at you, but is hiding behind a row of asterisks.
For Windows 9x and NT users the solution was to use a password recovery utility that displayed the passwords inside the box. But as many users upgrade to Windows XP they realize that Microsoft increased the security of the password boxes and all old password recovery tools no longer work. However, with the new iOpus Password Recovery XP users can reveal their forgotten passwords on Windows XP and Windows 2000 as easily as they did on Windows 98 or Windows ME.
Limitations: This utility works well with most password screens you will encounter on a MS Windows system, such as the password fields in Outlook Express. However, it does not work with applications that do not actually store the password "behind" the asterisks e. g. the Windows NT User Manager. The standard password recovery works on Win 95, 98, ME, Windows NT, Windows 2000 and Windows XP (all Editions). The WEB password recovery is designed for use with Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 (or better) on all Windows platforms
