I think I must have cleared something by accident...I'm trying to get back auto username and password settings so I don't have to type them in constantly. Where did I goof?
Thanks

Running IE8
XPP

I really don't want another ap since Xp usually works fine. However, I've still noticed when I login to ebay, it doesn't remember me at all. Why would that be? Do I need to delete all auto-completes first?
Thanks

not really...it remembered me just fine...all I had to do was double click in the form box and select my username...it then filled in the password for me

I wonder if I need to delete all auto-completes?

Roboform sounds brilliant but one thing springs to mind, what would happen if you had a hard drive crash or similar where Roboform was located? You would lose all your passwords to all your sites.

If your hard drive crashed you wouldn't just lose Roboform you would lose EVERYTHING - which is why I would always recommend making a backup of your hard drive - I couldn't sleep at night without having a backup of all my valuable data.
