    websites lose log ins and passwords


    My Windows Explorer browser has been losing all my website log ins and passwords. I need to re-enter the information.

    What is the cause of this? I always click the tab for saving the log in for every time I use it.

    Save yourself a lot of aggravation get RoboForm for your passwords. It encrypted and secure. I never allow IE to retain my login info

    Thanks for the advice. Love the Picture format of the answer. I'll see how it works over several days usage. I will check on RoboForm.

    You could try CCleaner.
