How do I delete accounts from the .NET passport login dropdown?
The .NET login is used for MSN Messenger. If several people
use a machine and sign into MSN Messenger then their email addresses
may be added to the dropdown list presented when you come back and login later.
How to delete email addresses from that list for privacy reasons is not obvious.
Fortunately it’s fairly easy.

In Control Panel, select User Accounts, click on Change an Account,
click on your login account, and then on the left click on Manage my network passwords.
You should now be presented with a list of accounts, some of which are the accounts
listed in the .NET login. And a Remove button.
