When you visit a password protected ftp site in the form of ftp://user@site.com:port within IE 6, you have the option of saving the password by checking a box. How in gods name do you clear the damn thing? Ive tried manage network passwords in the user CP, tools>i-net options>content>auto complete> clear passwords, clear forms. i cleared history and cookies. Nothing seems to get rid of the stored password. Google doesnt even seem to recognize that IE has FTP capabilities. Anyone have any idea on how to clear the password?

thanks sramesh, that worked. But really, there has to be an easier way, like clearing webpage passwords. Am i missing something or did microsoft just leave it out completely?

alfer, nice to hear the problem is solved. Not sure where the passwords are stored [in registry or a file]. Will investigate on this. Use this workaround for now.
