XP REMBERING...

Post by mike02 » Mon Oct 08, 2007 5:40 pm

I DONT KNOW IF THIS CAN BE FIXED BUT HERE GOES.
IN THE PAST WHEN I WENT TO A  CERTAIN WEBSITE AND GET PROMPTED TO LOG IN WITH MY EMAIL AND PASSWORD
I WOULD START TYPING AND XP WOULD REMBER THE EMAIL ADDRESS SO I WOULD NOT HAVE TO CONSTANTLY TYPE IT IN.
NOW IT DOESN'T WORK ANYMORE AND I HAVE TO TYPE IN THE EMAIL ADDRESS EVERYTIME, WHICH IS A BIG PAIN.
DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT MAY HAVE CAUSED THIS. I HAD IE7 RECENTLY INSTALLED BY MY IT TECH, DIDN'T LIKE IT AND REINSTALLED IE 6. WOULD THIS HAVE CAUSED THIS CHANGE?

THANKS IN ADVANCE AND KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK

Hi Mike,

Can I ask you not to type in all capitals please? It is more difficult to read and is also considered to be the internet equivalent of shouting.

It's not XP that remembers what you type, it's Internet Explorer. You can change the settings to turn it on/off. Here's how:
