and, if possible, all the xp/2k3 util :P

When you connect to a network share on your LAN or to your .NET Passport account, Windows XP allows you to save your password in order to use it in each time that you connect the remote server. This utility recovers all network passwords stored on your system for the current logged-on user.

Which passwords this utility can recover ?
Login passwords of remote computers on your LAN.
Passwords of mail accounts on exchange server (stored by Outlook 2003)
Password of MSN Messenger account (Only until version 7.0, for Newer versions - Use MessenPass)
Internet Explorer 7: passwords of password-protected Web sites ("Basic Authentication" or "Digest Access Authentication")
The item name of IE7 passwords always begin with "Microsoft_WinInet" prefix.

System Requirements
This utility works properly on Windows XP only when you logged on as user with Administrator privileges. You can also use this utility for recovering network passwords under Windows 98/ME. Windows 2000 is not supported, because this version of operating system doesn't save the network passwords.

Versions History
Version 1.03:
Added support for IE7 passwords. (For Web sites with HTTP Authentication)
Version 1.02:
Delete passwords option (Windows XP only).
Version 1.01:
Added support for Windows XP styles.
Added support for Autologon password stored by Microsoft Tweak UI tool
Version 1.00: First release.

Where the network passwords are stored ?
Older versions of Windows (Windows 95,98 and ME) stored the network passwords in pwl files located under the main Windows folder.
Starting from Windows XP, the network passwords are encrypted inside the Credentials file, located under Documents and Settings\<User Name>\Application Data\Microsoft\Credentials\<User SID>. Some passwords may also be stored in the Credentials file under Documents and Settings\<User Name>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Credentials\<User SID>.
In addition to the passwords of network shares, Windows XP also stores the passwords of .NET Passport (MSN Messenger) in the same Credentials files
