    Win8 and stored password


    I just replaced a Windows XP computer with old AOL dial up client with a new Windows 8 desktop and accessing my AOL email with, all works fine except the "Remember Me" for the password does not stay, I have to re-enter the password each time.

    Reading AOL forums, they point to AOL

    I have TrendMicro Antivirus Security without the Firewall, checking TM forums has nothing

    Any ideas from the Windows 8 side?
