It will usually be in a cookie in the temp internet folder find the one/s with the site name and delete it this wont delete the site short cut only the log in details.

I think the login data is normally held in encrypted form in a cookie for the site, so if you delete all cookies for the site in question, hopefully the log in and password will go.

They are call "Autocomplete Form Data". Delete cookie will not delete them.

You can delete them use program such as Windows Washer, but you delete them all, not just the one you want to delete. You can turn this function off In Internet Option advanced.

If you use Opera or Firfox as broswer, you can eaily manage this. Ha ha.
