Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.

.NET passports are used in Windows XP in various ways, and removing them isn't that obvious, but it is possible.

How do I delete accounts from the .NET passport login dropdown?

The .NET login is used for MSN Messenger. If several people use a machine and sign into MSN Messenger then their email addresses may be added to the dropdown list presented when you come back and login later. How to delete email addresses from that list for privacy reasons is not obvious.

Fortunately it's fairly easy.

In Control Panel, select User Accounts, click on Change an Account, click on your login account, and then on the left click on Manage my network passwords. You should now be presented with a list of accounts, some of which are the accounts listed in the .NET login. And a Remove button.

Update!

I've teamed up with Lockergnome and TechSmith to product weekly video tips. Now available is tip #12: Managing .NET Passports in Windows XP which will walk you through the process of removing items from the .NET Passport password dropdown, and more.

Just stop using them or logging in. They'll go away by themselves.

Hello, the solusion that you give, does't work for me. When i am in 'Manage my network passwords' i see the acounts. But it seems that the remove button does't work!

Leo

Are you logged in with an account that has administrative privileges?

My remove button doesn't work either. I am hoping someone can give me the registry key or dword to set deleting the login history

Nicolas
July 6, 2004 7:01 AM

Alex (and others), her's a tool that changes your registry. After you have used it, no .net will be saved anymore and it also removes the.net adresses that are in your list atm. Worked fine for me!

Ok, this removes the .net passports, but how do I make may computer remember my passport? Suddenly one day I couldn't automatically connect to the msn messenger because the dropdown list in login dialog is empty. I checked the registry setting (disabledomaincreds) you suggested to set to true and that is set to false on my computer. Still no passport is remembered.

Leo
July 12, 2004 8:40 AM

My guess is that can't be done (to prevent real kids from doing that). You may have to call MSN support. Otherwise I'd just create a new passport.

To remove sign-in names from the MSN dropdown list do as follows:

Go to extra in explorer, chose the option to show hidden files.

Then go to c: - documents and settings - your name - application data - microsoft - credentials. Remove the mapinside credentials.

Restart Windows, go to MSN and you'll find your sigin-in names gone.

Cheers.

December 22, 2004 4:29 PM

After I installed the file "disablenetcreds.reg" in my registry to delete all the accounts from .NET passport login dropdown, how can I remove it from the registry again? where is it located in the registry?

Leo
December 22, 2004 4:36 PM

To be clear, that's not a file I provided or support, however... ".reg" files are text files, so you can open it in notepad to see what registry key(s) were affected.

Ben
January 13, 2005 9:40 AM

you cannot uninstall that file.. all that does is change a little bit of writing in the regestry

i think this is it:
--------------------------------
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa]
"disabledomaincreds"=dword:00000001
--------------------------------
it either adds that dword.. or it changes an original. it shouldnt be anything to worry about

i think the original is this:
--------------------------------
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa]
"disabledomaincreds"=dword:00000000
--------------------------------
so it changes that value to 1 .. disabling 'domain credits'

I received my new laptop about a month ago. A friend came over and checked his email and now his email is the default under my user name. When I click on my user name, it opens to all of my info…the only place his info shows up is under my user name (as # of unread messages) before I open Windows XP. It doesn’t let me access his email account but it updates the info (under my user name) daily. I have already gone to Internet Options and “Cleared passwords” under the AutoComplete tab and have cleared all the cookies several times. I have also removed him as a user under MSN Messenger, Windows Messenger, and .Net passport sign in. I reviewed the feedback on your site and completed those steps; two accounts are listed…one is my hotmail.com account and the other is my .NetPassport account. His account does not show up under Manage my network passwords. I don’t know what else to do. I want to know how to access this area so I can change the default info to my own. Also, how do I prevent it from happening in the future, as he uses my computer occasionally to check email. Thanks!

I'm sure that someone else is using my other email address and I'd like to delete it. Trouble is, whenever I try and sign in, I'm refused access as it tells me my address/password are incorrect, yet I haven't altered them.

Please help, Leo!

Thank you.

Microsoft says this... but the version (4.7) of MSN Messenger that I have did not have the option:

How can I remove names from the sign in window?

When you sign in to MSN Messenger, you may see several Passport name choices available in the sign-in window. You can remove names that aren't needed or add new names.

In the main MSN Messenger window, click the Tools menu and click Options.
In the left pane, click General.
Under Sign-in Accounts and Passwords, click Change.

To add names to your list:
Click Add
Type your network location, user name, and password.
Click OK.

To remove names from your list:
Click the name you want to delete
Click Remove
Click OK.
Click Close.
Click OK.

Chris
January 12, 2006 10:59 AM

This worked perfect!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To remove an item/all items from the list of remembered names:

1. In Start menu select Run
2. enter: "control userpasswords2"
3. Go to Advanced tab
4. Select Manage Passwords Button
5. Add or Remove items at will

an item from the list of remembered names: Start/Run/control userpasswords2. Advanced/Manager Passwords.

How do i delete email addresses from the messenger drop down sign in window running on a mac?

ReeMi
June 17, 2007 7:19 PM

The .NET login is used for MSN Messenger. If several people use a machine and sign into MSN Messenger then their email addresses may be added to the dropdown list presented when you come back and login later. How to delete email addresses from that list for privacy reasons is not obvious.

Fortunately it's fairly easy.

In Control Panel, select User Accounts, click on Change an Account, click on your login account, and then on the left click on Manage my network passwords. You should now be presented with a list of accounts, some of which are the accounts listed in the .NET login. And a Remove button.

I found this thread while looking for a way to delete email addresses in the list for Messenger on OSX. I didn't scroll to the end to find out if the answer was here so I figured it out for myself. 1. open a finder window 2. browse to Library/Preferences/Microsoft 3. Delete any file with Microsoft.messenger as part of the name (could be more than two). 4 start messenger and complete the setup again. ..hope this helps.

krmacgurl
December 16, 2007 10:22 PM

I found this when downloading msn messenger for mac. If you want the other addresses deleted from the drop down list, delete all the msn messenger files, applications, whatever from your computer. Make sure you include the ones below...then just re-download msn messenger and go through the start-up again.

To remove all Messenger for Mac files from your computer, delete the following folders in the /Documents/Microsoft User Data folder:
Microsoft Messenger Data
Messenger Corporate Data
Microsoft Messenger History

krmacgurl
December 16, 2007 10:24 PM

Also, the folder you were supposed to find was just "Library/Preferences/Microsoft " The '3.' was meant to signify step 3

LOUIS H-T
December 27, 2007 4:52 PM

THIS IS THE ONLY WAY FOR MAC

1. Delete the Messenger for Mac application file from your computer.
2. Delete any Messenger for Mac Preferences files from the Microsoft folder in the Users/YourUserName/Library/Preferences/Microsoft folder as well as the following Messenger Preferences files:
* com.microsoft.AlertsDaemon.plist
* com.microsoft.Messenger.plist
* Microsoft Messenger User Cache
3. Delete the following Messenger folders in the Users/YourUserName/Documents/Microsoft User Data folder:
* Microsoft Messenger History
* Microsoft Messenger Data
* Messenger Corporate Data

THEN REDOWNLOAD AND INSTALL HEY PRESTO....

February 26, 2008 1:50 PM

LOUIS H-T's instructions will work but a simpler way is to just to this...

Close Messenger
Go to;
Users/”your user name”/Library/Preferences/Microsoft
Delete the file “ com.microsoft.messenger.plist “

All users are gone and ready to begin anew.

Tania
March 25, 2008 10:12 AM

I did all of the following:
"1. Delete the Messenger for Mac application file from your computer.
2. Delete any Messenger for Mac Preferences files from the Microsoft folder in the Users/YourUserName/Library/Preferences/Microsoft folder as well as the following Messenger Preferences files:
* com.microsoft.AlertsDaemon.plist
* com.microsoft.Messenger.plist
* Microsoft Messenger User Cache
3. Delete the following Messenger folders in the Users/YourUserName/Documents/Microsoft User Data folder:
* Microsoft Messenger History
* Microsoft Messenger Data
* Messenger Corporate Data"

and when i downloaded the messenger again, the accounts were still there.

I am on Vista and it will not let me delete from the dialog box. It let's me click to a MS Live web site to change it but the unwanted dropdown email address (Live ID) does not appear there. I even used their help to search for what they call account links. Any ideas?

This solution hasnt worked for me...when I go through the process it shows me the list of things to change except ''manage network passwords'', it just doesnt show that at all ?? Frustrated - as this is a useless feature to me and my family, any other ideas...PLEASE ?

well i believe i have found a solution for xp users atleast...

1- start
2- run
3- type regedit
4- Ctrl + F
5- (desired username to delete)
6- delete that username* >should be gone now.

in regedit the file is in
HKEY_USERS/S-1-5-21-343818398-1606980848-725345543-1003/microsoft/identityCRL

hope that helps.

Cannot SEND ANY emails from any files to anyone, without "login.passport.com" box popping up. I want to get rid of the whole darn Passport or Windows Live One Care or whatever they want to call it. Can't figure out how! HELP? Cant send out.

Just do a find under Microsoft, click through the results till you find the microsoft preferences, view by date modified, delete the ones that date from the last time you opened msn (it may pay to open msn and quit just before doing this so the preference set is most recent). Empty trash and the next time you open msn it will prompt you for reloading your account details, all the other email login addresses will be gone.

"In Control Panel, select User Accounts, click on Change an Account, click on your login account, and then on the left click on Manage my network passwords. You should now be presented with a list of accounts, some of which are the accounts listed in the .NET login. And a Remove button" ...I suppose this only deletes the latest login ID and the ID logged in after that will still appear automatically again in the drop down. Can we set it so as not to remember any login ID at all??

You are AMAZING. I've been looking everywhere for an answer, I had just removed it from my chosen programs but I still wanted to be at peace knowing they were deleted. You actually made sense! Thank you so much!
