where does internet explorer store username and passwords for sites that use NT authentication?

I access a sharepoint site, which asks me for my NT login and password. When I check the "remember login", where does it remember it? I don't think it is in cookies because I cleared my cookies and it still remembered it.

Thanks a ton! this is a great area of mystery to me. I would like to unlock this mystery!

Its stored as part of the user profile along with credentials for non-domain shares etc.
If you go into control Panel, select your user account and click on 'Manage my network passwords' you can see/delete stored credentials.
