I was accessing my companies mobile email site from my pocket PC like I've been doing for weeks now, and I finally got tired of re-entering my user name and password on the network login screen. So I thought I'd be clever and click the little check box that says 'save password'. As I sometimes do, I made a typo in my password and got an error message about invalide username / password etc. Oh well, no problem right, just refresh the page and enter it again... Doh! Same message.
So first don't panic. I closed PIE, re-opened, Doh! Cold reset, Doh! Clear temp settings, and cookies, Doh!. So this password was not stored as a cookie or in temp, hmm. I dug around through the file explorer and tried to nuke all the temp IE stuff I could find, no good. Every time I go to this page I get an error with no chance of entering my user info. I scour the web and find that certain types of 'clear' passwords are stored in the registry. Great, pocketPCs don't come with a registry editor, so I first have to go get another one of those. So I guess I'll be more careful with the 'save password' switch in the future.
To solve this type of problem.
1. Get a registry editor. I've used others but this time around I'm using BitsInside's regedit.
2. Go find the password value of interest in the registry and nuke it. These passwords are located at:
