    Removing Credit Card from Windows 8 Store


    Why does the Windows 8 Store account settings charm still show the last 4 digits of the credit card and the edit payment method and view billing history link even after removing the credit card from the Microsoft billing website? I tried logging out of the Windows Store, using wsreset and then logging back in and it still shows the last credit card information but when I use the edit payment method link it opens a page to add new credit card which was removed from the billing website. Where is the cached credit card data located? Is it in AppData\Packages or AppData\Microsoft\Windows Store or somewhere in ProgramData?
