What is the alternative to XP's GINA in Vista?

Posted: 12-26-2008, 09:45 AM

Hi,

I would like to know is there any way to find username and password for
a standard user in vista. In XP we have GINA by which we can get these
credentials.

Thanks.

> Vista will ship with a password credential provider (which provides
