Removing stored log in credentials for network shares in Windows XP


At work we run Windows XP and recently had a big security review where all the passwords were changed. This complicated things for me as our Source Safe database is held on a central server which I access across the network. When trying to access the share I was prompted for a password, so I entered the new one yet it refused to let me in. It seems this is because even though Windows asks you for a password, it doesn;t actually bother using the value you enter as the credentials are all cached!

A quick google later and it turns out you can force windows to clear this cache from the command line (but it also nocks out your network drives so you will need to re-map these!

net use /d *

It will ask you if you’re sure- just say yes and it will wipe out your mapped drives and any saved credentials – so make sure you note down the list of drives you currently have mapped which it will show you, so you can set them up again!

I absolutely love these. They came at the lace wigs are good quality, and very soft. Absolutely love these extensions. I just love this hair. Hair came on time, I waited until after hair extensions uk very full, no shedding and it is been installed for 3 weeks now and yes I jus ordered 3 more bundles. Lol. I definitely recommend this company for your bundles ladies. They are soft, hair bundles on the head for human hair wigs and I would continue to recommend them. I have thinner hair so they cover and blend nicely.
