Internet connection password Query

I only have one password,with the Internet connection box displaying the correct a\c name & isp phone number, my encoded password (set to remember) is showing 16 asterisks instead of 12, when changed to 12 it reverts back to 16 the next time I make a connection

A connection can be made using either setting,but can anyone advise on how I can identify and remove the unknown 16 digit password

There might not be a 16 digit password. Many things because of security add in extra asterisks. Its just meant to make it a little bit harder for someone to guess your password thats all.
There isn't a second longer password there is just one, windows does this deliberatly.
Just ignore it.

Totally-braindead is correct, XP does this deliberatly as a security measure.

Thanks folks, at last someone has answered a query I've had fo ages but never posted. BT (my ISP) didn't have an answer! Everything worked and scans turned up clear so just accepted it. yaesu

Thanks all for clearing up my query,I should have mentioned that I had just upgraded WinMe to XP (better late than never)
