Retaining Hotmail Password

  williamj 09:24 15 Dec 2009

Hotmail will not save my password.
Each time I log on. No problem logging on. But when I tick the box to save my password, it is not saved.
Next time I go to Hotmail I have to enter my password.
Any suggestions please?

I have the same problem but I have noticed my virus checkers once I reset clear all passwords .

Interesting point about how virus protection is effecting a password.
What virus protection are you using?
Comparing two computers using Hotmail.
One is using AVG virus protection, and retains the Hotmail password.
Another P.C. using M.S Security Essentials virus protection does not retain the Hotmail password.
Just wondering if there is a connection.

Any program that removes your cookies will affect your password.

As Sea Urchin says, any program that removes the cookie that Hotmail puts on your pc to remember the password will mean that you will have to re-enter password next time.

By removing the cookie you have wiped your pc's memory of the password.
