JSI Tip 3793. How can I prevent a user for saving passwords associated with Network Connections phone book entries?

The more passwords that you save in Windows 2000, the longer the delay after a user's credentials are typed into the Connecting To dialog box.

If you wish to prevent the storage of passwords, use Regedt32 to navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\RasMan\Parameters. On the Edit menu, Add Value name DisableSavePassword, a REG_DWORD data type. Set the data value to 1.
