I can’t seem to delete my sign in name. I use a work computer and a
shared on at home and do not want anyone to find my sign in name. I
used to be able to do this in the last version by simpy going to
accounts and deleting the it.

Can anyone help me?

Greetings,

To remove this, 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:

If you're looking to remove your saved Passport and password, simply remove the
Passport.Net\* (Passport) entry in the same dialog.

Thanks Jonathan.

Apologies for the bad spelling in my original post. Must have been
late. I have Windows 2000 and the instructions that you kindly gave
me do not seem to work.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards
