Auto-Log-in fails sporadically

  1. The Automatic log-in feature on several Forums won't work for me. The following websites have stopped logging me in automatically after I restart my pc:

    There are probably others as well that wouldn't work for me if I did try to use their automatic log-in features. Obviously sites and forums without this feature you have to enter your details in every time you visit but all these aforementioned sites SHOULD log me in Automatically, but they don't.

    I'm not sure what's wrong. I used Disk Cleanup and erased everything I could find. I cleared Mozilla Firefox's cookies and Private Data and then I logged back into all these sites and checked the "Remember me" or "log me in automatically" box while I entered my details. After a restart I found the 3 aforementioned sites wouldn't log me in again (This site included). I don't know what's wrong.

    Please will someone help me! These are 3 sites I frequent quite often (google, here, and facepunch). It's very annoying (even with Mozilla Firefox/IE7's saved form data) to have to enter the log in details everytime you restart your pc.

    Please help!!!

    The only thing I could suggest that causes this is I installed CCleaner recently. Anyone have any other ideas for what could cause this?

    I think CCleaners default setting is to run at start up :grinthumb

    Go into the options and uncheck it.Also msconfig start up.

    Yeah. It seems to have worked. Techspot and iGoogle sign me in automatically again. Facepunchstudios still doesn't but it probably never did. Thanks for the help anyway.
