User Changed Password - IE Pass-through Authentication Stopped Working

I have a user who accesses a website on an IIS 6 box on a network local to them (different subnet, same domain).  They used Pass-through authentication successfully for several months with the site manually added to the "Local Intranet" zone in IE properties.  The user changed their password and can no longer access the site without being prompted for user/pass.  Nothing else has changed except this user's password. The OS is Vista using IE 7.   Can anyone tell me how to straighten this out?

It sounds like that password is cached somewhere on IIS. I believe there's an option somewhere on IIS to clean the cache. Once before, if I remember correctly, I need something similar where IIS admin did something similar for me.
I can't remember it well though :(

I found the solution... I feel I should share it here.

Here it is:

The client had a Stored Network Password for the passthrough site in question.

To remedy:

Start --> Control Panel --> User Accounts --> Manage Network Passwords
There it was, clear as day.  Click the stored password and click REMOVE.
Restart IE.

Problem Solved.
