    Ok

    I stopped playing half life/cs online when steam first came out coz i was on dialup.
    Today, years later I have broadband

    I goto install HL1/updates and all and try and log onto steam. After a bit of mucking around I worked out that I created an ID all those years ago.

    Couldnt guess my password/or secret answer

    I've been guessing for ages, then, it let me in with that log in - but I dont know what password I used coz Ive tried like 1000 times :mad:

    Now that I am in ok - how can I find out what my password is out of the registry or wherever?

    cheers

    I have found this - but I dont know how legit it is

    Code:
    http://aluigi.altervista.org/pwdrec.htm
    
    Steam password decoder 0.1.1 (steampwd)
    experimental tool for decoding the password stored in the local ClientRegistry.blob file
    The password is encrypted using a key composed by 3 registry values which are unique for each computer so you can't recover the password located on other PC:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ProductId
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Cryptography\MachineGuid
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Valve\Half-Life\Settings\io
    The steam.dll file included is EXACTLY the same of some Steam versions ago, not altered or modified, just the original one. If you want to use a newer or different steam.dll file you must also modify the offset called by the program (1.0?)

    Hey mate,

    I was in the same situation as you, lost my password and didn't know the answer to my secret question.

    Here is the information on how you can retrieve your account password - http://support.steampowered.com/cgi...opup_adp.php?p_faqid=197&p_created=1093809052

    You will need to submit a case to Steam support with relevant information so they can verify that the account is indeed yours.

    Once they can, they will reset your password.

    Hope that helps!
    Keith.

    seems legit, use at your own risk obviously.

    if you really want to be safe, just disable your network connection, run it, use it, make sure the app is gone (task manager) and then start your network again,

    just so you know

    1) the program i used worked
    2) if you email steam from the account you registered a couple of days later they reset your password and let you know a temp one... i was surprised when they did this but they did

    cheers
