Hi Linda/Jonathan,

Can you please explain a little bit more clearly where I can find the
"control userpasswords2. Advanced/Manager Passwords" link. Do I click on
"start" and then "run" and then type in the words above? I've tried that and
nothing happens. I have checked in the registry for that string of words and
its there but I can't see how to remove a passport name. No passport names
are listed. Help! This is driving me nuts!!

Thanks,
Bev

Hi Bev,

Your Passports are stored in what is referred to as "Protected Storage", they are not in the
registry.

Try this instead, click the Start Button, then click the Control Panel. Then, click User
Accounts in the Control Panel. Select your account name, and then on the left side of the
screen, under Related Tasks, click 'Manage my Network Passwords'. In the window that opens,
you can remove an account by clicking the passport you wish to delete [denoted by
(Passport)], and then click the 'Remove' button. For more detailed instructions and
screenshots on this procedure, see here:

When I tried to remove the .NET passports like you explained nothing
happens. I've selected the passport I wanted to remove and when I
clicked the 'Remove' button. Nothing happens. I've repeated this
hundreds of times and the passports remain...

Is there maybe any way to remove these passports manually? By deleting
them from a certain file for example? What can I do?

Thanks
