I recently upgraded my system to XP. I had a problem with downloading a program. I got some help and and they had me delete my cookies. Now my computer doesn't remember logons or passwords on my applications. How do I get my computer to remember my logons and passwords again??
Thank you for any help,
:thumbsup:

If it's just cookies, then you'll have to re-enter your information for it to be remembered again. If it's not doing this, it's because another setting has most likely been changed. What else did they have you do to your system?
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

Click start/control panel/double click Internet Options/click privacy tab/click advanced/put a check in "accept first party cookies"/ check override automatic cookie handling/uncheck always allow session cookies/select block third-party cookies/click OK

If it is the cookie handling settings in IE that are the problem, then changing your settings to above configuration will fix your problem and block advertising and spyware cookies.
