Credentials

Hi,

I have 2 offices in different cities which I recently linked using a type of VPN; One office has a windows server 2003 domain

Upon trying to connect to the windows server in the other office I used my own credentials to login (The server username and password), I also clicked "remember my credentials", now every time I connect from that computer it uses my credentials to access the server in the other office, which is bad because I'm an administrator and don't want to give access to all the shares I have to that user.

How I can clear the creditentials on that computer so that it asks me once again to enter a username/password?

I tried going to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Credential Manager but I don't see anything listed ?

If you can't use the Windows way..
Ccleaner will do it..

There is a check box that says clear remembered passwords,  click that, run it, done..

Just use the free version.. it will work for what you need it to do..

Please note: Credential Manager has two sections (two Buttons corresponding to those): web Credentials and Windows Credentials. While web creds maybe empty, Windows creds won't.

open a Command Prompt and use the following command

net use \\fileservername /del

Be sure you replace fileservername with the actual computer or server name you’re trying to access. You can alternatively delete the credentials for all shares:

net use * /del
