Hi,

Where does Windows 98 store application passwords?

I've been mucking about with profiles and now DUN, Outlook Express etc. have "forgotten" my passwords - and so have I (well most of them)

To make things worse, the "Remember password" checkbox is now greyed out in Dial-up Networking...

Those passwords are stored in the PWL files on your system.
