Windows XP gives you the ability to store user names and passwords
on your local computer so you do not have to enter in your credentials
each time you access different sites or resources. Of course this
provides some simplicity for users that have to remember more than one
user name and password. However, in terms of
security, any one who sits down at your computer while you are logged
on can then access sites and resources using your cached credentials.
You can view and remove the stored credentials on your computer using the following steps:
- Click Start and select Run.
- Type in rundll32.exe keymgr.dll, KRShowKeyMgr and Click OK.
- The Stored User Names and Passwords dialog box will appear.
- You can remove an entry by selecting it from the list and clicking the Remove button.
- Click Close.
