It won't remember password

  martjc 15:29 19 May 2003

Before I (upgraded?) to Win XP my internet connection was always remembered so I didn't need to type it in everytime I logged on.

Now, even if I've ticked the box in the connection dialog, It is never remembered. Is this yet ANOTHER problem with the great new OS?

I think I'll go back to Win98 if there are any more (teething) problems!

Anyone help please???

I mean on the dialup connection dialog. It saves my username but not password.

All passwords are saved using this. I wouldn't have directed you to this thread if I didn't think it would help. It's up to you if you want to try it.

this is the fix you want

from the above link

"NOTE: Following this procedure will remove all stored passwords for your user account. Make sure you know what they are before performing this procedure!!

This fix also applies to Outlook, other programs that store passwords in the Protected Storage System Provider sub branch of the Registry. It also corrects some issues with Internet Explorer and Autocomplete2
