thnkvantage password manager

Hi all,

My laptop has/had the thinkvantage password manager (think thats what it was called). It was getting in the way of me adding my exchange account to outlook. Initially I got it to manage the password however it kept popping up even though I had picked the 'automatically' check. And strangely if I got the manager to not enter the password or closed it, I couldn't log in at all, outlook kept prompting for my exchange username and password, and if I then just started the password manager again it would work. Very strange, as if you had to go through the password manager to get the password to work!!! Anyway, I then had some problems with my wireless connection, fixed now, however during the process I lost my exchange account (my fault, i thought the security was getting in the way somewhere), and now I can't add my exchange account anymore. I keep putting in my password, and it keeps prompting for details as before when the manager was closed, even though it was open. Furthermore, I have now uninstalled the password manager and the same is happening ... help? I know my detials are correct as work on other machines!

One starting point would be to save the contents of your Windows profile on the laptop (save the entire profile to some benign location outside of documents and settings, or Users), remove the profile, restart, recreate your profile and see if then you can create the Exchange account.

Be sure the password manager is completely uninstalled before starting this. ... Thinkpads_User
