When you visit a webpage that requests a password, Internet Explorer (and other browsers like Firefox) asks you if you want it to remember the password. It gets stored in the "password manager". Well what happens when a customer's computer won't boot, but you were able to recover their "documents and settings" data? Is it possible to import these passwords back into Internet Explorer or FireFox so that things work just like they used to? Or is it at least possible to just view these passwords so that they can be re-entered one by one in a new installation of Windows XP? I was able to re-migrated passwords into FireFox on another computer no problem, but I don't know if passwords can be recovered with Internet Explorer. From what i understand, IE passwords are stored in the ntuser.dat file. Actually I found several "ntuser" files on my computer, some were small .txt files. I tried to back them up but was denied access. It said some of the files were "being used by another person or program". Apparently WHENEVER you are logged on to your computer, this .dat file(s) is "in use". OK. So I tried copying them offline with ERD Commander. No luck. Then I tried using an Ubuntu LIVE CD. It worked. Migrating into my new computer failed, because the ntuser file I wanted overwrite was "in use". So I tried Ubuntu again and it worked. I rebooted, but the passwords were not working. So the forced copy technique failed. Any suggestions on how to migrate Internet Explorer passwords?
