Problem with Passwords in IE6
When I enter a User Name & Password in the Internet setup, the password was 8 digits long.
When I try to logon in the Dialup system it shows Password as a 16 digit name.

I have tried all ways to remove the entry and re-setup the same correct passord it appears to go in but after pressing OK and again try to disl up it always appears as 16 digits again.

Trying to put in a new User name and password this time with a 11 digit password, the dial up once again shows 16 digits.

Help needed to remove whatever is preventing me from changing the password.

The 16 'blanks' is for security reasons.

Thanks VoG™ for the very fast reply.

I have read the link file and will look at the reg tomorrow as it is on a friends new laptop.

I notice though the last line

OLEXP: Your Password Is Not Retained in Windows 2000 or Windows XP (Q264672)

He has XP Home
Also it happens with both Internet Explorer and Outlook Express.

Question: What causes this problem, any idea.??
