I'm confused, so bear with me please. You had a site hosted by Microsoft as part of a Beta project, which you can no longer access because it is password protected. What does that have to do with uninstalling and reinstalling? What are you proposing to uninstall and reinstall? Are you hosting the web pages on your own computer, or on one of Microsoft's servers somewhere?

Sorry it took so long to reply. I have been looking around a little, and I didn't find anyone with the same problem that you describe. I found a couple of posts where passwords ceased to work, but that isn't the case here. In short, I can't find any way to get around password protected projects. What I can tell you of software in general is that simply uninstalling and re-installing the application is not enough to remove passwords. If you think about it, if it were that easy, then one could install a trial edition of an application, use it until the trial ran out, then remove it and reinstall it again. There would never be a need to buy full applications.
When I create applications that are password dependent, one of the first things the installer does is to see if there was a previous installation of the application. It can do this by checking the registry, or for the existence of special 'hidden' files. If it finds them, then it knows that there was a previous installation. If it doesn't find them, then it creates new ones. Apart from programming the application yourself, the only way you are going to know what was changed when you installed the application is to monitor your system for all changes.
For the people that were having problems with corrupted passwords, the suggestion was to refactor or rebuild there projects. I am not familiar with FrontPage, but I would think that one would need to have the project open in order to rebuild it?
That's about as much help as I can find.
