you could write a password search program..if you have some idea what the password was like(number of chars, only letters etc..) that could cut down the time to find it.

ie. if you can work out the possible ranges eg. between 4 and 6 char and only letters and numbers with the first 2 being "Ab". then it shouldn't take too long to find the password.

I have never written something like this before...but I^ll give it a wurl if you can give enough basic details about the password.

Otherwise you might look on some hackers web pages for some programs to crack your password.

check out www.easytools.com
Will "reveal" password, unlock database or lock database, I believe that it costs about $25 US.
