How do I remove all my passwords?

About to lend my friend my laptop as his computer is broken, removed most things from it but my passwords still seem to be there, ie if I go to ebay I can log in without needing to enter anything as when you click the box my username appears and when you click that my password appears too.

How do I clear all that stuff?

Thanks!

Done that, this isn't cookies, this is where it remembers your usernames and passwords and allows you to click them. Not auto login like cookies.

Reinstall the web browser.

Would help if you told us what browser you were using, in any case it should be fairly intuitive (in the options somewhere).

You must be using IE6 then (feel free to correct me).

Tools -> Internet Options... -> Content (tab) -> AutoComplete... -> Clear Passwords.

What a stupid suggestion.


Why?

Just to prove the point I uninstalled IE7, downloaded IE7 from the microsoft site and reinstalled it and did a reboot. Time 4 min 12 sec on a laptop over wireless. I would have saved about 1 min doing it on my desktop.

It took the op 13 mins to sort the problem so not so stupid now was it!

You realy should give a better browser a try (e.g firefox or google chrome)

IE6/7 is so anicent and painfully slow when browsing.

Tools > Options ... > Security > Saved Passwords

then remove each individual one

Create a new XP account is the way to go, saves having to clear up anything.

I did try that and it didn't work, I thought it would ask me if I wanted to remember the new password but it didn't.

Besides, it's not just ebay, there could be loads of passwords that I'd forgotten about so I wanted to clear them all.

Good idea, didn't want anything too drastic though. I doubt my mate's going to do anything but thought I should clear the passwords just in case!
