I find myself in need of getting as much relevant information out of a laptop as possible. Sort of a cross between a forensic investigation and archeology. One of my main needs is some kind of search tool which will help me identify passwords and maybe even details for hidden mail accounts. That might only be available on TV though.

I'm trying to piece together the activities of someone and the laptop might hold some of that information.

There's a piece of software called Cane and Abel which hackers run on machines to gather up any saved usernames and password.

See if you can get a hold of that and that might help.

Being serious though, hope things have improved on that front today :)

:D that would be class. Sadly though its my brothers and my task is to try and find an explanation for the event which unfolded yesterday.

....

That's enough of that.

Anyway, cheers for the suggestion Hairy, once things have calmed a bit here and most of the family is gone again I'll certainly have a look what I can find.
