MessenPass 1.24 is the updated version of the instant messenger password recovery tool MessenPass.
The application helps to recover forgotten instant messenger passwords of the current user who has logged in to the IM on the local computer. It will be successful in password retrieval only if you had enabled the remember the password option in the Instant messenger program. MessenPass detects the IM on the system and decrypts the username/ password stored in it.
If MessenPass is unsuccessful in locating the installed Instant Messenger application, you can manually pick the right folder of your IM application by using ‘Select Folders’ option (from the File menu). Select one or more password items on the main window of MessenPass, and then copy them to the clipboard in tab-delimited format or save them into text/html files. Passwords can be saved through command line options also.
You will not be able to retrieve passwords of other users of the IM using this software. The extra feature added in version 1.24 as compared with prior versions is the support for Digsby Instant messenger program.

Amit mentioned that his anti virus caught a trojans in it. I have taken the download link till I hear from the Author.
I wrote to the author about the possible problem
I recently reviewed one of your product :
A regular reader alarmed me about the possible trogan. Can you please check the download and update me with the same so that I can restore the link back to your site.
And I got a response for the same in a few hours:
False trojan/Virus alerts are very common in all my password recovery tools.
Just read about that here:
