it can be breaking a rule...because if we help you find that file...and you are truly wanting to use it for the powers of good..not evil..then..it would be ok...but someone who wants to use that info for evil would also have the info...so we can't help you...it's not an issue of not trusting your use of the information...it's about not trusting anyone's use of that information....so..basically we cannot help you with this problem...sorry.

Howdy:

desenette gave you the best possible reply here.. Although your intentions may be honorable, there are many out there that could use this same information for illicit purposes..

Thank you for your cooperation and this thread is closed..
