My dialup cable properties box keeps losing my user name and password even though I have ticked the save password box, could someone point me in the right direction, I’m not sure where to look for help.

Thanking you in anticipation

Not my expertise in this field, butI believe Windows stores these in a file with a .pwl extention. Open Explorer/file search/type in pwl and see where it leads you.
If you think the file it is corrupted, make a temporary back up of the file somewhere, rename with the extention .old then hopefully Windows will create one and will store the correct details in future when entered. If that works, delete the old file.
If it doesn't or my information is incorrect, I'm sure we will both be told soon and pointed in the right direction.
