Internet Explorer versions 4 - 11 and all versions of Microsoft Edge are supported.

Supported languages
English, German, Dutch, French, Italian, Macedonian, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Slovak, Chinese, Ukrainian.

Administrator privileges are highly recommended.
Please note that Windows NT/2000/XP/2003 stores all personal information related to Internet Explorer in the registry file (NTUSER.DAT). And Windows 95/98/ME stores Internet Explorer passwords and personal information in Password List Files (*.PWL). The PIEPR manual recovery mode supports only Windows NT - 10.
Internet Explorer 7,8 and 9 implement an extremely sophisticated type of data protection. Now the program is fully compatible with Internet Explorer 11 and reveals IE 7 - 11 passwords both in automatic and manual recovery modes.
Also note please, that some Web sites like yahoo.com, youtube.com, verizon.com, blackberry.com, myspace.com, etc. prevent passwords from being stored by browsers (no matter what your browser is). They instead have their own data encryption mechanism, thus the program shall not probably be able to decrypt any private information related to these Web sites.

Known issues and bugs
The program, although contains no harmful code, may be detected by some anti-virus/anti-spyware software as potentially dangerous or 'potentially unwanted program'. This is also known as 'False Alert', and it's quite a common problem for all password recovery software.
