Hi,

In windows XP is there any way we can set that it uses a different credentials to always connect to internet or Shares.
I have users logged in as local administrators or different Domain's but will need a different user account to access internet and shares and printers in the network they are connected.

How can i set it up that only once they need to enter the credentials and it will not ask henceforth.

Yes, Go to control Panel, double click users accounts icon and then click advanced tab. There you can see manage password and .NET passwords. Click passwords and then store username and password there.

Are you using a domain environment? In a domain environment it is possible. Also if you grant NTFS permissions to certain users then it is possible. When the password of the machine on which share is configured did not match with the password of the logged in user then it asks to pass the credentials.
