Note: I am NOT referring to Internet Explorer.
I am using Windows XP and Windows Server 2008 and need to delete the history values from the file browser (aka Windows Explorer). Somebody put a password into the address bar as ftp://user:pass, and now I can't delete the value.
Some forums say to delete this registry key:
In Windows XP, the key doesn't exist, and in Windows Server 2008, the key is there, but deleting it doesn't seem to help.
For XP, you need to use CCleaner, select delete History and Recently Typed URLs from Internet Explorer and Recent Documents and Other Explorer MRUs from Windows Explorer
For Windows Server 2008, log into the FTP site, press ALT, then do File > Login, at which point you can change or delete the password.
