See if this helps.
.you will need a Form3 w/a TextBox on it.

Imports System.IO
Public Class Form1
    Private myPasswordFile As String = Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.Desktop) & "\myPasswordFile.txt"
    Private sPassword As String = Nothing '// string to hold your password.

    Private Sub Form1_FormClosing(sender As Object, e As System.Windows.Forms.FormClosingEventArgs) Handles Me.FormClosing
        File.WriteAllText(myPasswordFile, sPassword) '// save.Password to File.
    End Sub

    Private Sub Form1_Load(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        If File.Exists(myPasswordFile) Then
            sPassword = File.ReadAllText(myPasswordFile) '// load password.
        Else
            sPassword = "!@(*&^$*()%$%_)(*^&*(" '// set a dummy.Password If no pre.saved password.
        End If
    End Sub

    Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click

    End Sub

    Private Sub Button2_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click
        Select Case TextBox1.Text
            Case sPassword, "top.secret"
                Form2.ShowDialog()
            Case "replace"
                With Form3
                    .ShowDialog()
                    sPassword = .TextBox1.Text
                    MsgBox("Password Replaced")
                End With
            Case Else
                    MsgBox("Invalid Password", MsgBoxStyle.OkOnly, "Ok")
        End Select
    End Sub
End Class

ok fine . just tell me how would you do by using xml fle

Saving to .xml is just as saving to .txt, just more modern.

If you really want to keep your password.secure, encrypt/decrypt it.
Here's something simple for vb.noobs:http://www.daniweb.com/software-development/vbnet/threads/375789

Since I have Not had much use for vb.net and passwords, I can only presumme that saving the password to the Registry, after encrypting, would be the most secure way to do, for a vb.noob.
