This forum site does not remember my details

  bines 15:03 25 Feb 2003

Every time I log on to this site I dutifully type my e-mail address and password and tick the box which says it will remember my details. I also say 'yes' to the Windows box which also offers to save my password.

In spite of all this I still have to re-type the whole lot every time. What am I missing please?

Are you running any disk clean up utilities or registry/spyware remover programs? if so, they will clean out your internet cookies and history files.

You're missing a cookie.

You are either blocking cookies, or deleting your cookies.

Exactly the same thing happens to me, 9 times out of ten, and it occurs without me making any changes whatsoever to cookies, or running any spyware programs etc!
I have seen me coming back to this site after 15 minutes and I have to type my username and password, after it having been showing the previous visit.
I have tried putting PC Advisor in my trusted sites, and it makes no difference.
I wish somebody would tell me what to do to remedy the situation, as it can be quite annoying!

Thanks for the replies so far. I'm not using any spyware, nor am I blocking cookies. I will check it out just to be sure.

I am using Norton anti-virus, is there any possibility that it is somehow blocking something?

Maybe the FE does not like you, and is trying to put you off visiting the site.

I am a new and novice PC user and the same thing happens to me BUT only when I am using Opera and not IE6. I do have Spywareblaster, AVG and Adaware installed.

If it is something to do with blocked/deleted cookies surely I would have to enter address and password when using either browser or is it something (but goodness knows what!)to do with how the browser has been set up?

Of course , if I am talking complete rubbish no doubt someone will put me right!

if you delete cookies and temp internet files you will always have to reenter your details

  bines 20:32 12 Mar 2003

Yes you got it in one - i wasn't keeping the latest versions of pages so the info was always lost when I logged off the helproom.

Many thanks to all who posted their responses.

I disagree about the Temp Internet Files bit of your posting. I have IE set to delete Temp Internet files on closing the browser, and I never have any problems. I agree that deleting all cookies can cause a problem.
