ISP password not remembered

  Marshmallow 14:41 31 Dec 2003

My computer does not remember my ISP password. On the connection box the tick box is greyed out. In IE properties the password box is also greyed out.
In OE properties the password box is filled in and ticked.
Any ideas?

Yes it does make a difference. The link I posted was for W2K and XP. Don't know why you have this problem in ME, sorry.

Yes because thats for 200 or XP only.

Are you logged on under Me?
