I was opening another computer (with windows 8) in my LAN, from Windows Vista client. It asked my password and I have entered wrong one, and also checked to remember it. Now I can't access windows8 computer anymore (says something like "can't get access to computer"). Probably it remembered wrong password.

How to force it to reask the password?


Check the following procedure, you should be able to edit or delete the password: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/manage-stored-passwords

Here is what it says:

  1. Open User Accounts by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking User Accounts and Family Safety (or clicking User Accounts, if you are connected to a network domain), and then clicking User Accounts.
  2. In the left pane, click Manage your network passwords.
  3. Select the password you want to manage.
  4. Click Edit, make the change you want, and then click OK.
