Lost Passwords with Windows 8

  carper 10:35 01 Aug 2013

I have recently changed my laptop with windows 8 and have installed some of my old programmes notably the free version of C Cleaner and when I run the cleaner a number of "remembered" passwords are are deleted. I have unticked the "delete" passwords and cookies and history, but this has no effect. I regularly loose 5 passwords. Any help appreciated. Regards Carper

Thanks for your reply. I used to use Firefox but now use Google Chrome although I have not uninstalled Firefox The passwords only dissapear when I have run C Cleaner.

I have now uninstalled C Cleaner and reinstalled it with Major Geeks. and then very carefully then gone into Cookies and saved all cookies relating to all web sites I use regularly. This seems to have done the trick. Thanks for your help
