You could try this click here but be aware that it will be flagged as malware by most security programs.

"fill in the required details and am told a method to change my password is being e mail to me"

There is also an option to answer security questions and change your password on-line.

Download and install click here

Then run SIW, then click on Secrets in the left-hand column to see your passwords.

If you get a message saying that a Virtual Machine is running, just click on Yes.

Or click here this is another program that shows Passwords - Click on Configuration in the left-hand column and then click on the Keys icon.

BTW, to anyone else reading this - the two programs I have linked to above, are both very useful items to have on your PC - I use both from time to time.

thank you all,seems for the download suggested to wk i have to either be signed in or have remember me ticked ,i will try the change online option

  Technotiger 07:46 03 Jul 2009

I don't understand you - either of the two programs should work perfectly, with no sign-in needed????
