I know that IE Saves your password, but is it to the registry or a file, and is it just one file or a whole lot of different ones for each website.
Can any of you guys out there help pls?
Thanks

I *suspect* it will be in the .pwl file belonging to the user login.
Dont know for sure. If it is its encrypted.

if its encrypted, in may be hashed with something that could be machine specific? If it doent work thats why.

I'm 99% sure that'd be the case.

I doubt it'll work at all, if you can find the .pwl file (it's probably a hidden file), because the file will be encrypted, and probably set up for that particular machine and windows installation.
