I have been a Bleeping Computer subscriber for a year. For the past two months I have not been able to log in automatically. I am welcomed as a guest but I am told that I can log in if I have a userword and a password. It is a nuisance.

I have these cookies -

name@bleepingcomputer.us.intellitext[1].txt

name@bleepingcomputer[1].txt

name@bleepingcomputer[2].txt

name@www.bleepingcomputer[1].txt

The 'remember me' box is ticked.

Do I need to tweak something?

Best wishes, whatapalaver

Some system specs would help and what browsers are you using and the versions please?

Also at anytime did you stop the automatic log on for BC? If you did whether on purpose or by accident then you will need an administrators help to get it back fully.

Dear ThorXP, Thank you for answering.

System -
Microsoft Windows XP
Home Edition
Version 2002
Service Pack 2

Computer –
AMD Athlon[tm]XP 2400+
2.00Ghz; 1.00 GB of Ram

Internet Explorer 7

Outlook Express 6.00.2900.2180 (xpsp_sp2_rtm.040803-2158)


I have never stopped or interfered with the 'automatic log on' for bleeping computer and I cannot remember what I was doing prior to the problem manifesting itself. I believe that I have a squeaky clean computer. All security programmes are updated twice daily and I scan for problems twice or thrice a week.

Try deleting all your cookies and temporary internet files then come back and log in. You may just have corrupted or conflicting files somewhere.

Internet Explorer7 might have either done something strange with your cookies or your password manager contents. Ronbo's advice might resolved the problem with the new version of IE.

Yup..thats the best bet. Delete all the bleeping cookies (or all cookies to be safe but will require you to enter credentials at other sites as well) and try again. Make sure you are accepting cookies from bleepingcomputer.com

Thank you. Deleting the temporary internet files and cookies has not resolved the problem. I can open a new topic and read the replies but I cannot add a reply because I am told that an error has occurred and I must log in with a username and password.

Could this be the cause?………..

When I registered with BC in January 2006 my username was ‘oldsoldier’, but after two or three months there was a problem with logging on so I re-registered with a new username – ‘whatapalaver’.

BC recognises ‘oldsoldier’ and ‘whatapalaver’.

My daily emails from BC are addressed to ‘oldsoldier’. I do not get any daily emails that are addressed to ‘whatapalaver’.

But, all replies to a new topic from me, [whatapalaver], are addressed to ‘whatapalaver’.

An hour ago I composed a reply and was ready to send it. Then I saw a spelling mistake and when I corrected the mistake everything vanished. In its place there was - ‘WEBPAGE HAS EXPIRED – MAY BE OUT OF DATE SO GO TO REFRESH TO FIX IT- or something like that. Could IE.7 be misbehaving.

Should the ‘oldsoldier’ should be shot?

And/or should I remove IE7 and reinstall it? I like IE.7 and prefer not to go back to IE.6.

Best wishes whatapalaver
