    Changing login on networked PC


    I'm having trouble finding a suitable search for this issue using Google.

    My situation is: I have a link to a networked PC. When I first clicked on this link it requested a username and password to logon to the PC. Unfortunately, I mistyped the username. Now, each time I click on the link it asks me for the password for that mistyped username, and I can't seem to find a way to change this. (It's probably bevcause I clicked the "Remember this logon" box.) Could someone help me here, or point me to an appropriate thread, please?

    Thanks in advance,
    Paul.

    :)
