Re: installed sec center 10 lost password vault


The Password Vault has been removed from the new security suites. In the product version pictured above, you will be unable to use the Password Vault.

If you had passwords or other information stored in the Password Vault, and did not make a note of them before your upgrade, you can retrieve them using the Password Retrieval Tool.

  1. Download PvReader.exe from and save it to your desktop.
  2. Click Start, select Run, type CMD, and press Enter.
  3. In the command window type CD DESKTOP and press Enter.
  4. Type PVREADER.EXE MASTERPASSWORD PASSWORDS.TXT (where “MasterPassword” is the master password you used to unlock your McAfee Password Vault), then press Enter.

If the McAfee Password Vault is present, and the master password is correct, all passwords stored in your McAfee Password Vault will be exported to a file named passwords.txt

on your desktop.


McAfee Password Vault is per user, which means each user has his or her own separate Password Vault which can be accessed only by that user. To export passwords from a different user you must log into the computer as that user.
