Disable Windows Password Caching

A client has a number of laptops that are shared amongst several users using the same local username and password. Problem, if one opens SharePoint, other Internet site, or File Share and chooses "remember my password" then passes the laptop onto the next user... you get the picture.

Disable password caching option:
Group Policy - Computer Configuration - Policies - Windows Settings - Security Settings - Local Policies - Security Options
Network access: Do not allow sotrage of credentials or .NET Passports for network authentication
Set to Enabled

This will disable the "remember my password" option from both Internet Explorer and File Shares.
