This truly pissed me off.

I tried to access a network drive. At first I was asked for log on information. At that time I didn't know the logon information, put a wrong one and then save credentials.

Now I can't access it anymore. I am not asked to change credentials. Looks like windows save the credentials and there is no easy way to delete it.

I tried

It tells to delete computer from active users. It doesn't tell how should I delete such user and how do I access this so called active directory and users

Tried rebooting? Or try to map it as a network drive and provide another credentials? – Alvin Wong Jan 19 '13 at 10:01
Try net use \\computername\sharename /user:xxx * from the command line. – Harry Johnston Jan 20 '13 at 21:09

from the command prompt type:

net use \\computername\sharename /delete

Obviously, put the appropriate computer and share into the path. This will delete any saved credentials for that share.

I went to control panel Credential Manager.

I delete that computer and it works again.
