Internet Explorer is driving me nuts!

  Mike D 22:41 16 Dec 2007

I cannot think that I have installed anything to cause my problem, but for the last 2 days whenever I try to go online I am asked for my username and password (BT Yahoo)I fill it in and duly tick the box to remember my details, but the next time I try sgain I have to login again. As I said up to a couple of days ago all was well. Oh yes, I am having a similar problem with the PC Advisor site login as well.
I use A Squared, Prevx, Comodo firewall and Avast, if that's any help.

It sounds like security settings to me, have you unset an option to save passwords somewhere?

  Mike D 22:54 16 Dec 2007

Not sure, I cannot see where that could be. If I have unset such an option where would I find the reset?

  Mike D 22:57 16 Dec 2007

Hnag on, might have sorted it using the security tab in IE tools. I'll just log off and see what happens.

Nah! False alarm, but at least this site has remembered me.

system restore?

Not yet because so far so good this morning. Dunno what cause it, but I'll try again tonight before I mark it as resolved.

Well, thanks guys. I don't quite know what happened, but everything appears to be back to normal. The only thing that I changed was in the security tab in Internet Options, where I changed to a custom level and allowed automatic logon using curent user name and password. However, why this should have been necessary, I do not know, because it is not an area where I venture.

I don't know the cause of this but I suspect that it must have something to do with a server problem, I have had a similar situation on a number of occasions (using Virgin) at first I played around to making changes and altering lots of things all to no avail, it eventually disappeared after a day or so - I have had it happen since and now do nothing but be patient
