Note: a few Windows “antivirus” and “anti-spyware” products have started to recognize password recovery tools as if they were “trojans”. This is how those products’ vendors inflate their detected “virus” counts. The effect is that end-users are no longer able to check password recovery software forreal viruses. If this affects you, please complain to your antivirus vendor.
