Removing saved windows passwords

Working with sharepoint 2003, you often have to test functionality for different users.

Doing so, you will have to remove the saved window password (That is, if you have accepted to save it).

 The idea with windows remembering user credentials is that when you are logged into windows, you shouldn’t have to remember user credentials for everything else. Whether that is a good idea seen from a security perspective is another issue.

But anyway. Howto remove them. Click start->run and type: rundll32.exe keymgr.dll, KRShowKeyMgr, and then you will be presented with an admin view from where you can delete the passwords and usernames.
