How do I clear cached credentials from my Windows Profile?
Windows seems to be saving my credentials for a variety of applications (terminal servers, etc) and I'd like to purge this data.
How can I backup and purge this data?
Is there a way to automate the removal of cached credentials via a PowerShell script that I can invoke?
The utility to delete cached credentials is hard to find. It stores both certificate data and also user passwords.
Open a command prompt, or enter the following in the run command
Windows 7 makes this easier by creating an icon in the control panel called "Credential manager"
good write up for both Admins and End-Users. Could have used a route guide to the Credential Manager, for those less-Admin knowledgeable.
