HOW TO : Clear saved username/passwords in Windows

I came to know this method, when I saw one of the IT techs use it to troubleshoot some Internet connectivity issues.

To clear any saved username/passwords (i.e. Internet Explorer, Windows Explorer etc) in Microsoft Windows, do the following

  • Click Start –> Run, and type in control keymgr.dll
  • Delete any entries you want to from the list
  • Click on close

I tried this on Windows XP and Vista.
