how do I delete password information

casiFebruary 27, 2012

Specifically, my problem is where the blank spaces are to put the user name, as in logging into Yahoo mail, when I double click, all these options that have been used appear. I have IE9 and I went in under tools....internet options....checked the box to delete password information. They are still there.

Have you cleared your cache?

Here is a link that might be useful: clear cache IE9

If I understand you correctly clearing the cache will do it, but the list will rebuild again with IE use.

Perhaps, Tool>Internet Options>Content tab>Auto Complete Settings>Check or uncheck what you wish>OK out. Depending on the action you take this would restrict or prohibit the cache building.

In the alternative while in the Settings you could just click on the "Delete Auto Complete History".

Maybe ... hover mouse over login names you don't want windows to remember, and press delete.

Think that part of the 'forms data' of the clear temporary internet files.
Then you loose all login/address's/more ... the form field boxes on webpages.
