PCA Forum is not remembering me

I have just done my normal weekly clean up and back up.

When I login to the PCA Forum my details are blank.

I re-enter them and tick the "remember me" box but it doesn't seem to be working anymore. I have just logged out and logged back in and my login fields are blank again.

Have you forgot to untick something that says clear cookies when the browser is closed? Its easily done.

Yep same with me today. Maybe its their server?

You are probably thinking of Temporary Internet Files from IE's Internet Options>Advanced tab.


I remember you...:-)

The most likely reason is Passwords control if you use Firefox (Privacy tab) where you should try adding the PC Advisor website or, in IE, Internet Options>Content>Personal Information>AutoComplete is not Enabled.

It's a while since I used IE so the above may require a bit of tuning...:-)

octal, not that I know of. I do my cleanup and backup every week on a Sunday. Never had this problem before.

Am now loggin out and will shut down and reboot.

See what happens.

When you log on PCW creates a Cookie, if you ask PCW to remember your password and then delete the subsequent cookie - you will get the problem you mention. That's what I have found anyway!

It should not need to rely on cookies, I use netscape it keeps my Passwords in Password Manager. IE should do similar

IE may need a repair click here

freaky, yes I realise that. I do a clean up and back up every Sunday. All my Cookies and Temp Internet Files go. When I log in to the PCA Forum after the clean up I have to enter my details again, I always tick the "Remember my Details" box (which up to now has worked) but not today.

I seem to have to re-enter my details every time I log in.

Will do another shut down and re-boot.
