  1. Long time reader first time poster ...

    Ok heres whats happening to my sys , When ever I log into a site with a username and password I have to relog in for each page I visit ,For some reason my computer is not remembering passwords ...It even is happening on this forum
    Just to log in is a joke ... I click on log in and type my username then pass ,and after that I am redirected to the forums then if I want to post something I have to log in again then if I look at something else and wish to post again i have to log in again ... Do ya see where Im coming from it's like the twighlight zone ...
    I have reformatted my hard drive's and still the same problem persists ...
    I have noticed that I get the same prob with java pages also

    Any help would be much appreciated thanxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    Check your cookie settings. Are you using a proxy?

    True, I've only seen that with cookie settings. But after a fresh format? hmm

    What version of Windows? What browser? What security programs do you run? Are you using a limited user account?

    maybe these will lead you somewhere.

    You could always try uninstalling your antivirus and any other "protecting" software. Just briefly. And turn off firewalls and such. As a test.

    When in IE, when you click log-in someplace, look in the bottom left corner of IE, does it say error or "problems on page" or anything like that? Or does it just say "Done"?

    Yes it does say error down in the left hand corner of my IE browser ...
    I will uninstall all of my firewall and anti virus stuff later today and see what happens ... Thanx

    The error is usually javascript, if you double-click that little space, it should pop up the error message if there is one.
