When you use Internet Explorer, it can be very comfortable to say yes for the password saving prompt, simply because it is stored in a secure way in your Windows profile on your computer. The only issue with this, that if you save not just form authentication passwords but Server/Windows authentication passwords as well, the browser will try to logon automatically to the specific system. If you would like to change your identity - prevent Internet Explorer to use Single Sing-on (SSO) - you have to delete the saved password. If you don't want to search for panels on the Control Panel, simply run the following command in the Run popup: control userpasswords2 After that press the [enter] button. On the panel appear go to the second tab called Advanced and press the Manage passwords button. There you can delete all of your saved passwords but of course you should remember your deleted passwords because you won't be able to log on to your systems anyway.

Who ever used the Sent to Notepad feature on Windows XP will wonder how it is possible to hide this functionality extensibility on Windows Vista. The root cause of our problem is the following: by default an administrator is not a real administrator on the computer without the elevation of privileges and that's why we don't have access to the Send To folder using general methods but following the next few steps we will be able to overcome on this behaviour: Create a shortcut to the NotePad.exe file in any folder, for instance in the c:\temp folder Start a simple command prompt (Windows button + R, cmd + [enter]) Step into the SendTo folder (cd SendTo) Copy your shortcut to this SendTo folder using the following DOS command: "copy c:\temp\notepad.lnk ."The dot (.) is necessary at the end because that stands for the current folder. Use the Send To Notepad feature  Another interesting thing: after the successful copy if you check the content of the SendTo folder using the DIR command, you will find that empty. Just like if you run the command prompt in elevated mode (using the Run As Administrator option).
