When I run CCleaner which box do I untick so as not to delete passwords etc. Have tried the cookies one and that doesn't work. I have BT mail as home page and it resets that back to Yahoo so have to go through a reboot and the password screens to get it back. Same for any forums etc that " remember me "
Oh heck, I,ve started something now. Right, if I run Vistas own disc cleanup there is no problem. If I run CCleaner ( in it's default mode -- never altered anything ) then any passwords etc are lost. So I have to re enter them all next visit to those sites-- like this one. What ( if it's possible ) do I uncheck to stop that. I have the Yahoo toolbar from BT mail etc. I use it for all email. When I stoke the PC up each day I am taken to "BT Mail" as my choice of home page. CCleaner deletes that and replaces it with Yahoo home page, presumably because the password info has been deleted.
uninstall the yahoo marketing spyware, either re-install without it or install this click here version. run it, go to every site you need a password for, enter password, open ccleaner> tools > cookies and move them all to the right (keep) panel.
"I agree with Technotiger, but the box NOT to tick is "Autocomplete Form History" Anyway if you do tick this you will get a warning that your Passwords will be deleted" as rawprawn said.
Then, after having logged into your webmail, launch CC, go to Options>Cookies and highlight those cookies in the left hand pane that relate to BTYahoo. Click the central arrow to move those cookies into 'Cookies To Keep' and they shouldn't be wiped next time you run the cleaner.
Thanks chaps, Stuartli's suggestion at the start for moving the cookies over seems to work, certainly for the email home page and one forum. For this forum and one other it didn't ? Maybe they have something to do with the "autocomplete forms" setting. One to try next time. Now does CC remember those settings when a new version is installed ?
