Hi Malcolm,

Can you rephrase your question again? Perhaps you need the user account
information in a text file?

This is my first question on this newsgroup so I started with generalities.

For my sins I am 'temporary' unpaid IT administrator for a charity with
about 30 PC's.

Some machines are in a mess so I want to remove the user profiles but then
reset the desirable bits.

When I 'inherited' the job I found a printout of the internet connection
settings for some machine - including password - all in plain text. I
thought this must have come from the user profile. It would be jolly
useful if I could extract this before removing profiles.

Thanks in advance.

Malcolm,

Similar software is available at http://www.nirsoft.net/ PassView (i think)
should be able to accomplish the task.

You're welcome Malcolm.

Yes, one of the most useful ones is the ShellExView.
