Dial-up password

A relative has forgotten her ISP password, the one that should be remembered by the dial-up. Does anyone know how to dig it out of Windows 98SE please?

Can she/he not phone their ISp and ask them to re-set it? No doubt they will be asked a few questions to ensure that they are who thay say, but it might well be the quickest solution.

Hi, there is often a "Forgot Password?" link within the dial-up program, if so get your relative to click on that and follow on screen instructions.

Hope this helps as I am only making a 'stab-in-the-dark'

Cheers.

If the dial up box still contains the password, as a string of asterisks, i.e. **********, and she has forgotten the password, Snadboy's Revalations will show you what the stars are covering up.
