Overview

Show-Password is a program developed by Revizer Technologies. During setup, the program registers itself to launch on boot through a Windows Schedule Task in order to automatically start-up (this is typically done to avoid any UAC prompts). It adds a Browser Helper Object (BHO) to Internet Explorer. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The main program executable is Show_Password.exe. Typically most users end up uninstalling this just after a few days. The software installer includes 14 files and is usually about 1.1 MB (1,156,390 bytes). In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows 7 (SP1) as well as Windows 8. While about 24% of users of Show-Password come from the United States, it is also popular in Saudi Arabia and Italy.
