Clearing Network Credentials

Hi,

Is there anyway that I can get Windows to forget the network credentials entered for a share/system so I can logon with a different set.

Thanks
Norman

You might try
Start->Run->CMD
NET USE * /del
and answer "Y" when prompted...

In Windows XP Professional you can change the registry value of:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
Name: DontDisplayLastUserName
Data Type: REG_DWORD
Value: 1

A value of 1 will clear the last username, a value of 0 leaves the last username in the login box.

I am not sure if this works with Home Edition.

The GUI way to do it is to go to Start==>Control Panel==>User Accounts (classic view) and you should see a like that says something like "Manage My Network Passwords".

Ooops...select the user first in User Accounts then you can click Manage My Network Passwords.

In Windows Explorer, click TOOLS - DISCONNECT NETWORK DRIVE . . . and remove the connections for the server.

You can also use the RUN-AS feature.

Thanks to both of you.

It would appear that I need to do both.
