Messenger, PalTalk, Miranda, Pidgin or Pandion), there is a pretty good chance to find your preferred IM in the list.
Once you located your IM, you are requested to specify the path where a dedicated *.ini file is located – this file stores the information needed by Advanced IM Password Recovery to extract your password.
