Password question....

I screwed up and checked yes for Windows to remember my password to an online account. I don't want Windows to store that password. Can I delete the password from Windows memory so that it doesn't automatically display? I could change my password at the website I guess. I am in hopes I can delete it from Windows.

Thanks

Go to the site to log on - uncheck the "sign in auto" - then manually type the password. If this doesn't work go to internet options and click on "delete cookies" as well as "delete files"
Hope this works
