Click on the Tools Menu and select Internet Options.

Now select the Content tab. In that you will have an option called Auto Complete, click it.

Then click on the Clear Passwords and Clear Forms and click OK button.

If you want to diable the option in future remove the check boxes selected in the same Autocomplete Settings Page.

For second part of question:

The reason why you cannot print is because the passwords are encrypted. To print them you would have to decrypt and then print. Passwords are usually stored in .pwl files but for IE i am not completely sure

IE stores your (saved) password in files call cookies the passwords are encrypted, but if someone knows your user name he can login as IE give your password automaticly.

The only cure is to delete the cookies (Then you will have to type your password when you return to the site)

The easyest way for you to do this in an internet-cafe is to press the deletekey when the auto-complete item you want to delete is selected.

So when youre done with what ever you logged on to, you logg off. Then you start to logon again, and you will see the auto-complete list. Select the item using your arrowkey's and press delete.

You're done.

The Items are stored in the registry. I don't think an internetcafe would like you to mess around with the computers registry, so forget about that one.

You can however delete stored passwords (for autologon):
Read Kaarthick's awnser.

NEVER USE a logon-url on a public computer!!!
These are url's like: ftp://username:password@ftpsite.com
