In win2k on a dial up to an ISP windows lists the password twice when it is saved. I have deleated and re-establised the account but the same problem occurs!
Any ideas out there?

I know that win2k hides password under a certain legnth, however, unless I enter the password again the isp rejects the logon.

help would be appreciated

Change the username to something bogus, attempt to connect, let it fail, change the username back and put in the proper password, but don't check to remember the password. Let it authenticate and connect, disconnect, reconnect, put in the password and check the remember password box. This has worked for me in the past. Hope it helps.

Thanks I tried this but didn't get anywhere.
Finally I solved the problem by deleting and recreating the account again, I would like to know why it happened though.

In Internet Explorer, go to Tools --> Internet Options --> Content --> AutoComplete
--> Clear Passwords --> OK.

The next time you enter the site, you will need to refill out your account information.
