I used to have my browser of my computer in the office to remember my username and password (including banking account, ebay, ....)
My company plan to upgrade the computers in the near future. I would like to know where is that username and password being stored and plan delete them before returning it to exchange for a newer one.

Thanks for the input first.
If I want to delete the password for IE, should I use regedit to navigate to  HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\IntelliForms
 and delete everything.
Will I have the same result if I go into Internet Explorer, Tools -> Internet Options -> Advanced and the Reset IE.

Regarding firefox, I go to %appdata%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profile, I find a directory ux39vspw.default. There are a Cache and a OfflineCahce directory. Should I just delete everything there.

Thanks a lot

I also believe my IT dept also has some rules for it. But it will make me feel better if I do the changes you recommended.
Thanks
