How do you edit password files in Vista?

Can you get to the password file in Vista to remove old/deleted password?  I thought the extension was *.pwl  but nothing comes up for that.

Are you talking about the logon password - you cant edit/delete that. If you are taliking about stored basswords for shares etc then go to
Control Panel
User Accounts
Manage Network Passwords

This only brings up a couple of passwords when I use the edit option.  I have many other passwords stored. Assuming htey are in a file of some type but perhaps not.

If you are referring to IE passwords, then I think you are out of luck I am afraid. You can view them, with utils like pspv.exe, from Nirsoft, just not modify them....
