You can store it in the registry:

// Save data
RegistryKey regKey = Registry.CurrentUser.CreateSubKey(
				"Software\\tayspen");
regKey.SetValue("Name", "Tayspen");
regKey.SetValue("Pass", "123456");

// Retrieve data
String name = (String)regKey.GetValue("Name");
String pass = (String)regKey.GetValue("Pass");

if (name != null)
{
         // Do whatever you want with the data here
}
if (pass != null)
{
	// Do whatever you want with the data here
}

regKey.Close();

As you say you make a password manager i would advice you to crypt the data you store.

this isnt exactly a post related to your question but i would like to suggest something to you tayspen.
Your code is a little hard to read because you didnt rename any of your controls, nor did you comment anything to tell what it does.
I suggest you look up C# Programming Standards and Naming Conventions , it will understand how to write your code to be more understanding to others, such as instead of keeping the name "button1" name it to "btnEnter"

here is a site with some info about it http://www.akadia.com/services/naming_conventions.html

You are right. I think i will rewrite it better. thank you plazmo for your advise. Though i still dont undestand how the registry thing works ;)

Just as plazmo suggested you rename your controls properly and also post the complete source of your app (so that we're actually able to compile it), then we can help you further.

Ok, i will do it... That was all the code....
