How To Remove Signin Details Of MSN Passport

Question:When I sign onto Messenger in Windows XP, there's a drop-down menu of sign-addresses I can use. Is there a way to delete those addresses, so I have to type it in each time ?

Answer:Yes, there is a way, although you will need to modify/create a key within the system registry.

Follow the following steps:

1. Open the Registry Editor (type regedit in run dialog box), and navigate to the key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ SYSTEM\ CurrentControlSet\ Control\ Lsa

2. Create a Value called "disabledomaincreds" and set it to "1".

3. Reboot will finalize the process.

Note: This is generally only useful if you are setting up a system to be used by many users.

Key Details:

Machine Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ SYSTEM\ CurrentControlSet\ Control\ Lsa]

Value Name: disabledomaincreds

Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)

Data Value: "1" = disable : "0" = enable

Heres a faster, safe, alternate way:

1. Must be logged in as ADMIN

2. Go to Start > Control Panel > User Accounts > Choose your account >

3. Choose "Manage my network passwords" at the top left.

4. Then delete which ever MSN accounts you don't need.

I hope you will like this tutorial. :)
