    Is there any software that can be used to "reveal" passwords that have been forgotten. For example, the password in Outlook Express is disguised by DOTS - is there any way to actually see what the password is. I help folks with their systems and many times encounter the need to input the password but the folks can not remember what it is. I am not trying to steal passwords or get unauthorized access to files or programs, - just trying to help out friends.

    NirSoft has a whole series of free utilities - see Free Password Recovery Tools.

    Warning: some security programs see NirSoft utilities as malware.
