AIM Password Recovery is a simple-to-use and straightforward piece of software that immediately retrieves the lost or forgotten password of your AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) user name, by scanning your hard disk on the current user account.

The installation procedure is quick and does not require any special input from the user. Once it finishes, you can check out the small, regular window with the uncomplicated layout, representing AIM Password Recovery's interface.

The "what you see is what you get" concept clearly applies to the tool, since there are no other options available, aside from the ones visible in the main frame.

Initializing the scanning and recovery task is done with the simple click of a button. AIM Password Recovery automatically decodes the found password and shows it in intelligible format in the main application window.

The program is very low-demanding when it comes to the CPU and system memory, so it does not interfere with the runtime of other active processes. No error dialogs have been shown in our tests and the app did not hang or crash. It can be handled by all types of users, even the ones with little or no experience in such tools. On the other hand, AIM Password Recovery has not been updated for a very long time.
