Click the start button, click find and search for files with the .pwl extension Delete all of the files, reboot the machine and start over with new .pwl files You need to delete the corrupted ones and create new files so that this error stops popping up You're going to need to know your password for your ISP since it used to be saved in the corrupted password list If you either don't know your own password or didn't write it down somewhere in case of emergency you'll have to call your ISP and have them reset it for you after you prove the account is yours.
