    Erasing FTP site passwords for Windows Explorer in Windows XP

    I have stored the username and password for a FTP site on my PC running on Windows XP so that the windows explorer can open it without any prompt. Few days back, I have changed the username and password for that site. Even after deleting every entries from the network neighborhood, it log into that site with the old username and password. How can I delete these details from my system?

    Click the ‘Start’ button and then select ‘Run’ from that start menu. Type regedit into the field appears on the screen. This will open up the ‘Registry Editor’ window. Navigate into HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software\ Microsoft\ FTP\ Accounts from the left pane on the window. Check whether it is possible to find the FTP for which you have changed the username and password. If so, right click on it and select the ‘Delete’ option. Quit the registry and start up windows explorer again to see whether you can login FTP site with new username and password.
