finding/cleaning address everywhere

Hi Guys

I've been on the Internet 40+ years and over that time I have registered on several websites most of which I no longer visit.
Is there a way of automatically searching the internet to create a list of websites I've registered that I can work through deleting/un-registering as required.

I'm using VB.net 2017 so any ideas, code examples would be most appreciated Console or forms app!
Thanks

Not to my knowledge. You may be able to identify such sites at which you have registered if they have sent email to you as a way of verifying that your account is still alive.

Thanks RLWA32-6355
I Realised that after posting the question! There must be billions of websites that exist...
So decided to look at the favourites bar, as I've probably saved a link to pages
trouble is Microsoft have changed how Explorer, Edge and all the other Browsers store these links :-/
Anyway I now have a huge list of sites that I can can call e.g.

For each URL in URLs
Dim URI as New System.URI(URL)
Dim REQ as Net.WebRequest = Net.WebRequest,Create(URI)
REQ.Proxy = nothing
Dim RES as Net.WebResponse = REQ.GetResponse()
Next

Now I have to figure out which of these require Logging into?

Thanks again anyway :-)
