<<I'm looking to decrypt password store for ie 8 or somehow virtualize the whole xp system and run under windows 7.>>
I'm not sure what you mean by these words.
IE8 is the browser...not sure what password store you are talking about. IE 8 has an autocomplete feature...but I have always thought that website passwords are part of the data that is maintained in respective cookies for websites. I don't use the browser autocomplete function.
But...take a look at the data under Passwords at http://pubs.logicalexpressions.com/Pub0009/LPMArticle.asp?ID=348
I know nothing about virtualization, but if you mean that you want to re-establish XP as a virtual install on a Win 7 system...that topic can probably be best explored in the Win 7 forum.
You may want to review some of These Links.
