In a network, when we want to access a computer on the network we need to provide the computer name and password which are temporarily stored in Windows Cache but if we choose Remember Me option than it our computer will keep a copy of it. This can be a security issue. Here is the method to delete all cached Windows Network passwords.

Go to Start > Run > Type control userpasswords2 and press Enter.
User Accounts Dialog Box will appear.

Go to Advance Tab and Click on the Manage Password Button.

In Generic Credentials Remove the saved Username and Passwords.

That’s it.


The credential file is stored in the following locations:

Windows XP/2003: [Windows Profile]\Application Data\Microsoft\Credentials\[User SID]\Credentials and [Windows Profile]\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Credentials\[User SID]\Credentials

Windows Vista: [Windows Profile]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Credentials\[Random ID] and [Windows Profile]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Credentials\[Random ID]
