I noticed that if I don't come back to this website every few days, or so, I have to sign back in again even though I checked the bullet to keep me signed in. Why is this? Are we automatically signed out every so often if we don't come back on this site every so often. Thanks. I am a home computer user.

No, you shouldn't be signed. If you are deleting your cookies on a periodic basis, though, that would cause this.

Thanks Gringer for letting me know. I am not deleting cookies deliberately, It must be some program on my computer doing this without my knowledge. At this time I am not aware of what program could be doing it. I have Microsoft Security Essentials on this computer. I just checked the setting in MSE and I don't see where it tells anything about deleting, or saving cookie. I would like to take care of deleting cookies myself if I can find out what is deleting them. I have Window vista. Could it be some program that came with Vista that is causing this?

Yeah it sounds like a startup entry most likely. Check to see what is running by typing msconfig in the RUN bar. MSE doesnt have a setting to remove cookies so it could be a toolbar you may have installed.

Tim, I checked in msconfig but was not able to identify any program that would cause this. Windows defender is also turned off so that is not causing the problem either. I will keep googling to see if I can find out what is causing this. Thanks.

I was just gonna suggest he may be doing this (Probably w/o realising it)

If he checks REMEMBER ME he should stay logged in!!

4Dude, I did check, remember me. This is why I can't figure out why I have to keep signing in. It seems to hold for a few days and then all a sudden it ask me to sign in again. I don't have any idea what program would be doing this.

Do you have IE8 in private mode?? (It might be auto deleting your cookies)

What level do you have your INTERNET security zone??


Im on IE6 and if i put my INTERNET ZONE to "HIGH",no cookies are saved (Or put sites into the RESTIRCTED ZONE)
