Prior to selling my (windows XP) desktop. I would like to delete user names and MSN hotmail addresses from the sign-in page. Please can anyone explain how to do this?
Thanks in anticipation

Start, Run, type in

control userpasswords2

and click OK.

On the Advanced tab, click the Manage Passwords button.

You need to delete the cookies for each user and untick remember my details that should them request both username and password at signin.Turn system restore off as well to delete any saved bits there may be.

Sorry VoG your suggestion didn't work but thanks anyway!

Thanks for your advice A NICKNAME, Sorry to be so thick, but how do I go about it? I'm very much of a novice!

How come VOG'S suggestion did not work for you. I did it straight away no problem??????

To delete cookies, in Internet Explorer, click Tools, Internet Options, under General Tab, click Delete cookies. While you're there, delete Files as well.

Vog's solution is the one that I was going to post and is widely accepted as the way to do it. It does work. Make sure you're typing "control userpasswords2".

To: Old Shep,Idle And Wild, and VoG,
VoG's solution to my problem certainly had its merits. Unfortunately the MSN hotmail addresses were not shown for deletion within the 'Stored Usernames and Passwords' box. The only e mail address shown is my main address from my ISP.

Also to A NICKNAME and temp003,
Have also tried your suggestion of deleting cookies, but offending MSN hotmail addresses still refuse to be deleted from my screen
But thanks for your suggestion.

Presumably you don't want to format the hard drive and reinstall XP?

The other place to try is Internet Options, Content tab, AutoComplete, Clear Forms, Clear Passwords.
