Where does the /savcred switch store the administrator password?

I use this /savcred switch along with a RUNAS command to allow users on my network to access a program that needs admin rights.  I recently changed the domain administrator password so now all the user who used to be able to access that program can no longer do so(old domain passwd used to be the same as the local one).  I am running a windows 2000 AD network and need a way to give the 'users' group, admin rights over this one program.  I am currently doing this through a batch script.  Please help.

Run this from the run prompt or command window:
rundll32.exe keymgr.dll,KRShowKeyMgr

It should open up the Stored User Names and Passwords dialog.  
egerzon, in case you are not aware, using /savecred stores the credentials for *any* program the user wants to run. See the following URL for more information:
