I have a new login, but it keeps prompting me with the old login every time I want to connect.  Where does MS keep that data?  I've looked seemingly everywhere.

As stated in the link.  You need to delete the SqlStudio.bin file located at

%APPDATA%\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Tools\Shell\

The only downside is that it will remove all of the remembered logins.  AFAIK there is no way to delete one or two of them.
