Windows keeps some passwords in memory once they have been entered, and 
others are read from a hidden part of the registry 

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Protected Storage System Provider

and can be read using the protected storage COM object pstorec.dll.  


Various password 'recovery' utilities using protected storage are at:


Network Password Recovery lists all network passwords saved, another 
tools read RAS passwords, and specifically Protected Storage PassView 
reads all the MSIE passwords (and Outlook and MSN).
