Find Internet Explorer Passwords

If you are like most people, you have probably forgotten most of your Internet Explorer or Firefox passwords by now, and rely like crazy on the auto-form password fill that both these browsers as well as a plethora of other Internet browsers provide. If you weren't so lazy, you would have kept your passwords in a secure, yet easily accessible to you location, but you're not like that. Instead, you wait till your computer crashes for the last time before you realize that you are completely and utterly screwed. Ok, let's not delay this, you need to get the ball rolling on this right away. It's time for you to find those Internet Explorer passwords, go and do that now and come back to this post.

Ok, I fooled you, I really geeked you out, led you around like something awful. Don't get angry at me, unlike Firefox, that let's you easily access your passowrds (This isn't such a good thing btw), Internet Explorer hides them in a file that is easily retrievable with the correct tools.

In order to retrieve your Internet Explorer Passwords, you'll need a program called IE PassView, you can download it here. Once you've downloaded the program, and installed it on your system, like magic IE PassView will Geek out all your Internet Explorer Passwords for you.

Thanks for this. I completely rely on my autofill, but it would be nice to know these passwords I've forgotten over the years.

So, why does my System Mechanic antivirus identifies it as a Trojan?
