    Deleting Password(s) (XP)

    How can a person delete the automatic password(s) that are automatically brought up. I accidentally typed in a couple of wrong passwords, and now the program (one of them is Yahoo Messenger) looks for that password. If these passwords ARE deleted, can they be automatically reset the next time the program(s) are accessed?

    Are you saying that you can no longer access those programs or that you can't remember the "wrong" passwords you typed in ?? And what programs are we talking about ???

    Both. On some, there is a dropdown box that comes up. Wrong password shows in that box (I typed it wrong first time I used it). This program gets me into my work facility. There are other's, such as Yahoo that do not have a dropdown box. I acidentally typed in the wrong password, and checked the box to automatically log me in. Now it looks for the wrong password.

    I've never used it, but I believe that Internet explorer password revealer will do what you want.

    To fix the Yahoo problem, simply delete your Yahoo cookies from the Temporary Internet folder. You will then have to sign in again.

    The other is probably a registry edit and since it's related to your work, I'd suggest that you ask your IT department to assist you there. HTH <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Strange, it was there yesterday - and is still in Google's cache. That link was for version 1.3 and I see that version 1.4 is now on the site at www.rixler.com - but this has a slightly changed name as well - so maybe it's no longer shareware, I can't tell from the download site.

    Protected Storage PassView is a small free utility that allows you to view and delete the passwords saved by Internet Explorer, Outlook Express and MSN Explorer.

    The first item on the page leads to a "not found" error, but the second goes right to a DL link for Version 1.3. Looks like the right software for the job. <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15>
