    Passwords & Autocomplete (IE 5.5)

    I've stored a few passwords and user id's inside explorer. From what I can tell, this is managed through the autocomplete feature. Does anyone know where the user id's and passwords are stored. I'm interested in being able to manage the file where these are stored. For example, backup the file or print out a hard copy for future reference.

    Hi
    In Win 9x passwords are stored in files with the *.pwl extender. They can be deleted and rebuilt.
    IDs may be stored as a system thing : in Win 2k there are metafiles with names like usrclass.dat which cannot be manipulated directly in any way : no Print, Copy, Move, Backup or Delete, for starters.
