Windows Key Manager

Posted on Updated on

Do you have hidden cached credentials in Windows that may be locking your user account in AD?  Simply run command “rundll32 keymgr.dll, KRShowKeyMgr“.   This will present a GUI for Stored User Names and Passwords for mapped network drives which you need to disconnect.

    Great hint – even when running W7, dude!

      That’s a great point – it probably does work on any of the microsoft operating systems, I didn’t think to try it! I’ll update my post.

    I would concur with Nicholas and elmunjo, terrific post, I was going through a lot of issues due to a slew of stored passwords that were no longer valid. The strategy seems to be to blow them all away :)

      Thanks Bob! I have to laugh because every now and again I need to come back to my own blog post to remember how to do this.
