Remove cached credentials in Windows

In Windows you have the possibility to save passwords for servers, websites etc. with e.g. the "runas /savecred" command. Sometimes you need to reset or remove these cached credentials, and you need to use a "hidden" tool.

  1. Click Start, Run
  2. Type rundll32.exe keymgr.dll, KRShowKeyMgr and hit enter
  3. Remove the credentials cached

I have tested this procedure with Windows XP and Windows Vista

    I don’t even know the way I finished up here, however I thought this put up used to be good. I don’t know who you’re but certainly you are going to a well-known blogger if you are not already. Cheers!
