Please note that this program can recover your lost or forgotten password only, extracting/decrypting it from your own system (if such information is there, of course). So it cannot be used to crack somebody else's passwords on remote computers.

A few modern instant messengers, such as ICQ version 6 and up, Yahoo! IM version 7.5 and up, and all versions of Skype, never store password information anywhere. Instead, they perform one-way transformation of the password, creating a "hash" that is used to authenticate users with IM servers. Advanced Instant Messengers Password Recovery is able to back up and restore such passwords, effectively allowing transfer of IM accounts and settings from one PC to another without knowing the original password.
