Hello !

Someone asked this one a couple of weeks ago here. He wanted to
disable Password Caching of MS Internet Explorer, when using it with
a proxy_auth based Squid cache.

MSIE uses the same logic for passwordCaching as Win95 itself. When disabling PW
caching trom the OS, MSIE won't cache then either. To do this, just add new
DWord type key

DisablePwdCaching = 1

into registry branch


You can do this with REGEDIT.EXE. Then just delete user's .PWL files from
C:\WINDOWS\ and restart Win95.
