When you change your password for a web site that you login to, how can you get IE to use the new password. I have changed my password for a password-protected site I use and IE keeps filling on the old password.

I'm using IE8

You can use Nirsoft's IE PassView to view your saved passwords. Then you can delete the old (stored) password for that site, and the next time you try to log in that site, IE will ask you whether you want to save your new password. Just say Yes and that's all.
