    IE Password (7.0.5730.13)

    I received a new password from Samsung and tried to enter it into their support form and a message appeared the said:

    Password does not match.

    I let IE remember my passwords, which now, seems to have been a mistake.

    How do I either remove the old password or turn the option off? Where are remembered IE passwords stored?

    Remembered passwords are stored in the Windows registry, but not in an easily readable format.

    You can remove all remembered passwords:
    - Select Tools | Internet Options...
    - Click Delete...
    - Click Delete Passwords...
    - Confirm.

    To turn off the option to remember passwords:
    - Select Tools | Internet Options...
    - Activate the Content tab.
    - Click the Settings button in the AutoComplete section.
    - Clear the check box "User names and passwords on forms".
    - Click OK.

    Thanks Hans, you are a font of knowledge. Thank you for the information. I only use IE because of access to the Lexmark Toolbar. I am switching horses in the middle of the stream all the time.

    One caveat - I don't beleive IE typically gives you that exact warning. Doesn't it typically tell you that you have entered a different password and ask you if you want to change the previously stored password? Perhaps the message is coming from the web site itself?? Just a thought.

    Regardless, you can review your stored password by using this tool:

    However, some anti-virus programs do not like this program and consider it a threat and making it unusable... But for a private user on your own machine, I don't see it as an issue. You are only asking for your own passwords.

    It seems like eons ago that I needed the password for my Samsung CD-ROM. Lots of water has flowed under the bridge since then, the Samsung has been trashed and a Sony has replaced it.

    I use Robo Form, it stores all my HTTP passwords,

    AutoComplete passwords have never caused me a problem, therefore I now have no use for IE PassView. I print the information every month or so, to have a hard copy just in case.

    I appreciate the link, it just comes much to late. I will save the information in case of hard drive failure and I lose all the passwords stored in Robo Forms memory

    Thanks for the link.
