Running Windows XP Home IE 6 latest fixes. I have gone to Tools, Internet Options, Content, Auto Complete and all items are checked such as remember passwords etc.
When I go to a webpage that requires passwords. I enter name and password. I get window asking if I want Windows to remember them. I click yes. (nothing else is clicked such as don't remind me again or No.)
Next time I go to that webpage I have to re-enter the information again.

My computer does not auto complete addresses etc either.

Anyone know what the problem is. I want it to remember passwords like 98 did.

I went to a website and fixed something in the registry to correct this but can't remember what I did.

Thanks,

I went to Microsoft Knowledge Base and t yped in Not remembering passwords.

I found an article about not retaining passwords in Outlook Express.

I did what it said which was going to the registery and under software I removed a protected password key and then went to Outlook and reentered my name and password and check for it to rememger it and low and behold it did. This fixed it for all windows which also fixed it when you sign into webpages and or forums etc.

Now if only someone can help me solve my other problem which is Taskbar not remembering and holding my quick launch icons. When I right click on taskbar and click the quick launch option my icons that I have drug to my taskbar previously are placed on my taskbar but when I restart my computer they are no longer shown on the task bar. I have to right click taskbar and choose quick launch again to get them placed on my bar.



See my post concerning this.

Do you have any idea???????
