i can't believe i have to go to a newsgroup for this, but
all i tried so far, failed:

---
in simple: a shared folder i once connected to, can be freely
re-accessed even after a logout. how can i clear that credential
or in first place, not have the user/pass cached?


---
in detail:

the setup is a couple of xp boxes. one (S) shares a critical
folder, to wich the others can connect using the administrator
account and pass of the box that shares (S).

then i connected from a second box (C) to that share (browsing the
workgroup) without checking the 'store password' box when entering
username/pass. the problem now: although i logged out from that client
account whenever i log in, the account can browse the workgroup and
freely access the critical folder (S) without being asked for
a password.


1. how can i clear that credential for good?

2. how can i make 100% sure that a password is not cached somewhere
when i access a share and thus make the share avaialable to
anyone logging in after me??


any hints deeply appreciated

thanks for the hint, but that only describes the process and
access permissions. what i am looking for, is where connection
credentials are stored (sharing system or client system?) and
how a specific credential can be erased.

to avoid misunderstandings, the way i connected the share was
simply t ogo to network neigborhood, searched for the system,
clicked on the share and entered that machines account (i.e.
user/pass) which was not a duplicate account, nor was it a guest
account that's publicly open....

thanks for your reply.

the point is, it's not in there! the list is in fact empty.
i found that only the password you specify xp to 'store' by
clicking on the checkbox when you first connect, are listed
in your network passwords and can be deleted there...

Try deleting everything within;
%USERPROFILE%\Application Data\Microsoft\Credentials\

%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Credentials\
