    Erase the sign-in name.. it should delete any saved password information or auto-saved password information that could be entered. Does that help?

    Well download a tracks eraser if you REALLY want to be sure...


    MS Antispyware does it

    Otherwise clear your internet cache and cookies...(the manual way)

    well, go to Control Panel then to User accounts, once again click user accounts, in the new window {under related tasks} click manage my network passwords. Here you will find the saved password, if you have any.

    Hey Hey,

    Saved Passwords and .Net Passports (MSN usernames) won't be cleared when you clear your history/cache/offline files...

    Assuming you're in XP you'll want to go to Start --> Run --> control userpasswords2
    Click on the Advancd Tab
    The top section will have Saved Passwords and .Net Passports... You can delete/add as you like.

    Peace,

    Hey Hey,

    I think the problem here is we're talking about two different types of passwords..

    You're talking about like AO and the Passport Login on Microsoft (where cookies are saved) and clearning cookies will clear them.

    I'm talking about MSN Passwords (When you click Save My Password) and Site Passwords (Like for the pop-up on an FTP Server, or cpanel or Exchange)...

    Peace,
