When you try to view a Web site that is protected with a password, you are prompted to type your security credentials in the Enter Network Password dialog box. If you click to select the Save this password in your password list check box in this dialog box, the computer saves your password so that you do not have to type the password again when you try to use the same document. This behavior is known as password caching.
To disable password caching, follow these steps:
- Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
- Locate and then click the following registry subkey:HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings
- On the Edit menu, click New, and then click DWORD Value.
- Type DisablePasswordCachingto name the new registry entry, and then press ENTER.
- Right-click DisablePasswordCaching, and then click Modify.
- Make sure that the Hexadecimal option button is selected, type 1 in the Value data box, and then click OK.
- Quit Registry Editor.
Note In some cases, you can create a custom .adm file to modify this registry key, and then import it into the IEAK Wizard.
To re-enable password caching, you can either delete the DisablePasswordCaching entry, or change its value to 0.
