can't delete credentials from credential manager


i have a major problem with the credential manager.

After my login, i go to credential manager and delete everything. Then, i restart my pc. For a really strange reason, all my credentials are there, like i haven't deleted them before!!!!!!

is there a way to get rid of them for good????

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

Same thing happens when I try to delate the old ones. Looks like a bug to me, there has to be a way to do this properly. It doesn't cause any problems but I just like to keep things tidy and simple and there are a few old computer credentials I would like to get rid of.

I havn't found an answer for this yet but I would like the old ones to stay gone when I delate them. I looked around in the registry but couldn't find them. If you find a way to do this let me know please.
