Hello smart computer people

Using XP Professional. The computer is normally left on or in stand-by. When I visit web pages with user name and password it has the option to remember me. I check the box and it works great as long as I don't shut down or reboot the computer. Is there something in IE or Windows that is deleting cookies after shutting down or rebooting? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hello cosmo727,

I would imagine that temporary internet files and cookies are being deleted when you close your browser. Have you set the browser to do this?
Also just to be safe, have you tried using a different browser to test if its just IE related?
Regards,

Alan.

Thanks for the reply.

As long as I leave the computer on or in standby I can close the browser any number of times and and it works fine. Only when I shut down or reboot does it not remember user names and passwords. If I do have it set to delete cookies on shut down I have no idea where the setting is. I don't have a different browser to try.

Thanks

Hi Cosmo727

If you follow this link you can download Firefox which is an alternative web browser.

Hey buddy, You are making click in sites to remember me , if you are doing that in any browser by setting, it will save your informartion till the time you delete it.

I found out what is causing the problem. I have sympatico for my ISP with their anti virus software. Now all I have to do is contact them to see how to fix it. That should be lots of fun!!!
