Windows 7: Credential Manager won't save my new password even after changing it

Credential Manager won't save my new password even after changing it

Hello guys,

Credential manager keeps remembering my old password for any network addresses I want to connect to. It uses this password on any network address I type in and doesn't allow me to change it even after deleting all the credentials(i.e romove from vault) and creating them manually. How I know its the old password is because there is no change in length and yet the new password I'd want it to save is shorter/longer. See attached jpeg file.

I'm running windows 7 ultimate x64.

I have exactly the same problem: credentials manager remembers and old password. Even if I delete the credential, when i sotre it again (tickling on "Remember my credentials") the password that is stored is that same old password, not the new ine that I am typing again and again...

It is amazing how many very basic things just don't work in Windows 7.
How is it possible that the old password is still there if I have deleted many times the credentials ???!!!
