Outlook Not Remembering Password

Q: Outlook Not Remembering Password

I have a Pentium Core Duo with Vista Home Premium, Norton 360, MS Outlook and two separate user accounts (one the Administrator). Even tho I checked the "Remember Password" box for both users, Outlook continually asks me to hand-enter the password every time I open it - from either account. I have Outlook set to automatically send/receive upon opening. Any advice on how I can get Outlook to remember the password for each user and stop asking for it every time I open Outlook?

Thank you!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

I know this same problem has been posted a number of times, but I can't find a situation similar to mine.

When I check the "remember password" box in Outlook Express V6, the password isn't retained. I read the Microsoft article about how to correct this, but here's the problem. Microsoft says to go to the registry and locate the key named; HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Protected Storage System Provider, right-click on the DEFAULT subkey and delete it. My problem is that the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Protected Storage System Provider doesn't exist in my registry. Any ideas? Running Windows ME.

my wife told me i needed a new laptop for Christmas and Anniversary so i could give our daughter my old laptop...

ive gone from the tried and true XPpro to 7home and the latest firefox (10?)...

as i set up my bookmarks and login information, as long as my browsing session remains 'in force' my website favorites remember my login information. once i exit firefox, all of that info is blown out...

ive gone through the options and tools and such for firefox and ive got the 'remember passwords for sites' box checked under security but to no avail...

i have the history shut off (as i did in my old versions) so im wondering if they have made it mandatory to keep the history (new method of tracking cookies?) if so that really blows...

can anyone point me in the right direction?

I have an account on a website that is quite important; it is a https site. It remembers my username and password, so I went to Internet options and deleted the history, passwords, cookies etc. I also edited the options to "don't remember passwords or data entered into forms etc" but the problem still persists. The people who manage that site told me it's not a problem of which they are aware either.

I would try a different web browser but neither chrome nor firefox seem to support all the functions of this site. If I am missing something obvious or if anyone has anything else worth trying please do let me know......thank you.

I'm a new Skype user (Skype Portable) and the only way I can get Skype to remember my password is to not sign out but use the Quit Skype option when right-clicking the taskbar entry. I found this by doing a global search.

Doing this leaves me signed in to Skype (Task Manager shows the two Skype entries), so I'm wondering if this could be a problem, security wise.

Also, if anyone does know of a way to get Skype to actually remember the password, maybe adding a line to an ini file (appinfo.ini ?) I'd sure like to know.

Hello all,

I help out part-time at my local library. One of our research stations (Win2k), just can't seem to remember the login/password info for a site we frequently access. We make sure the "save password" box is checked when logging in. After IE is closed and restarted, when a patron tries to log in, the username/password fields are blank, even though we saved it previously.

We have that info saved on our other research stations and the info never gets lost. It's just this one problem system. All the systems are running Win2K and have latest IE version and updates. All the settings are near identical.

The site in question is www.corptech.com. It is the login part to their secure site. It is a research database in which we allow patrons to access. That is why we keep all the login/password info saved, so patrons can go directly into the site. The problem system can never remember this info, so we always have to retype the info to login, which is a hassle.

I have double-checked the settings (autocomplete, privacy settings etc.), run adware/spyware/virus scans and uninstall/reinstalled IE. I'm still having this password problem. I downloaded Firefox and the password manager remembers the info successfully everytime. But not IE on this one system. So it seems to me something is wrong with IE. I have even tried clearing all the cache, cookies, temp files, then reattempting to login and save the info. It still isn't remembering.

Hello.
I have a user who is using Outlook 2002.
Some time ago, he typed in an e-mail address in the To: line, incorrectly.
Now when he comes to e-mail that person again, if he starts to type the name it comes up with 2 auto-complete options - the correct spelling and the incorrect spelling.

He wants to clear the incorrect entry so that it is no longer an option. There is no entry for the recipient in either the Personal Address Book or the Contacts list.

At one point, I highlighted the incorrect entry and pressed delete and it disappeared. From then on, only the correct entry would appear. However, after rebooting, both options were back.

So, can I permanently delete this incorrect entry?
Where is it stored if it isn't in the address book?

Gram
 

A:MS Outlook remembering wrong e-mail addy

What you did should have deleted it permanently, strange it didn't.

The address cache is located in the Outlook.NK2 file .The file is normally located in Documents and Settings - {username} - Application Data-Microsoft-Outlook.

However the file is encrypted, so not really editable. If you delete the entire file, a new one should be created from scratch, and would get populated from then on.

Alright, here are the facts:

1. When I start up my machine, the windows login screen tells me that I have (1) message in my Outlook 2007 - I have it set up through google.com, so my Outlook address is a gmail.com address. Yet when I open my Outlook, I don't see anything. Some messages come through, every time I restart, the screen tells me I have a message in there.

2. I had the Outlook 2007 set where when I open it up it asks for a password, and when I send something out, it asks for a password. All of a sudden, it doesn't do this anymore, no matter how many times I restart the computer, or close and open Outlook. I even attempted to use the repair feature in Outlook, but it worked to no avail. What is going on? My business depends on me being to secure my email accounts, and receive important emails - I can't afford to miss a really important one.

3. I also have this software called ComboFix that I've been hearing about which is supposed to be really good, but I didn't run it because I don't have anyone to guide me through any of the results, plus I heard it could possibly mess up my machine. I would like to run it if it will cure my machine and make my life easier.

**My machine is Windows XP.... Please can someone help me? It is greatly appreciated.

I have a Dell Inspiron 660 running Window 8.1 Pro.

I had been using Outlook 2013 for about a month with no problems, when I got a message saying my OUTLOOK.PST file was approaching maximum size of 2Gb. However, I could not open it to compact it or delete items to bring the size down. I just kept getting the "approaching maximum size" error.

Outlook was NOT asking for a password for my mail server, It's specifically asking for a PW to open OUTLOOK.PST.

So, I opened the OUTLOOK.PST file in Outlook 2007 successfully, did some housekeeping, and reduced the size to about 700Mb. However, when I tried to open the PST in Outlook 2013 again, I was prompted for a password to open the PST. I tried my MS Account PW, and several other PWs, but none worked. I never set a PW for the OUTLOOK.PST in the first place. I was never prompted for a PW before the "max size" error came up.

I am able to open the file in Outlook 2007 without being prompted for a PW but every time I try to open it in OL2013, I get the PW prompt.

I have also run the SCANPST.EXE utility on the OUTLOOK.PST file, but that has not changed the PW prompt.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

In Internet Explorer, I am having a problem. My first step was to contact Microsoft, but they said I would have to talk to you as it was an OEM version. In IE, the box for a username and password pops up. I fill in the info, and check the box to remember it. However, the next time I go back, the fields are blank. This happens every time, for all sites. I have tried everything I can think of, including reseting all default settings, etc. Thank you.

 

A:IE NOT remembering passwords

So Microsoft gave you the address of this site to get help? Is that true?

Anyway, are you talking about IE not remembering the userid and password when you first connect to the net via your dialup connection or are you talking about userids and passwords when you go to certain webpages?

If your talking about it not remembering the userid and password when you first connect to the net via your dialup connection then do this,

Start>Find>Files, key in *.pwl and press enter. You should see one that has the username for your PC. Right click on it and select Rename. Now rename it .old, for example, bhesson.pwl would be renamed to bhesson.old

Now click on Start>Shutdown>Restart. When the Windows logon box appear at startup leave the password box blank and click on OK. It's important that you click on OK and not on Cancel.

Now see if IE remembers the userid and password. You may need to key it in the first time but after that subsequent conections should remember it.

If your talking about userids and passwords when you go to certain webpages then do this, Start>Settings>CP>InternetOptions>Content>AutoComplete. Make sure userids and passwords are selected.

Greetings BC,

This problem is happening in Chrome. At my school, you have to log in to use the internet. When I connect using the wireless my log in credentials are saved and all I have to do is click log in. However, when using the wired connection (much faster) it does not remember my log in details. I believe it used to but one time a friend logged in with theirs for some reason and now it doesn't remember them. Typing this in every time I want to get on the internet is pretty annoying and I would like to have it remember my log in details.

Picture if you want: http://i.imgur.com/QQjJa.png

I tried deleting the saved password in Chrome for the URL I get when logging in to wired but it didn't remember it after I logged in again.

Could someone please let me know how I can get Chrome to remember the log in details?

Hi All

I've a minor problem with one of my DVD drives and was hoping that someone might know of a solution. My computer runs off Windows XP Home Edition. I have 2 DVD drives in my computer, (there are also 2 hard drives in the tower) a NEC one and a Pioneer one. In most respects, these two drives work fine independently of, and in conjunction with each other, I've come across no problems so far anyway. I am afraid I can't say how the slave/master relationship works as I've no idea, if it's necessary to know to solve this problem, please let me know how I find out and I'll be happy to provide the info. The only niggling problem is as follows:

My Pioneer drive is the newer, quicker of the two drives, and I use this most of the time, to watch DVDs, play games etc etc. Often I leave a disc in this drive when I shut down my machine. When I turn on my machine again and put another disc in this drive, it still displays the previous disc's contents when I go into explore, and by going to start, run and entering the drive details, it won't start it either. I have to 'wipe' the memory of the disc being in that drive by rebooting. It isn't only limited to a disc being in the drive on booting up either. If the drive was empty, and I put disc A in it, if I later remove it and put in disc B, it still thinks disc A is in there. This doesn't seem to happen with my NEC drive, only the Pioneer one, and the only solution I have found... Read more

To have separate folder views per folder, you would need to open the folder at it's actual say "C:\Users\(user-name)\Documents" location instead of in the Documents library.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

HIJACK THIS:

Download and copy hijackthis to its own folder , it makes backups so keeping them separate and available can be useful.

Note the Spyware tools websites are very often under attack and so I have provided more than 1 location to download from:

Close all open windows and open Hijack This. Click “Scan”. When the scan is finished (it only takes a second), the scan button will change to “Save Log”.
Click on “Save Log” and then save it to NotePad.
Click on “Edit” – “Select all” – “copy” and then “paste” into the thread.

I have been using the Pre-release version of IE 10 in Windows 7 since it came out, and generally find it very nice. A problem has just cropped up, though...

There is a setting under 'Internet Options' to have IE start up with tabs from the previous session. This has been working fine until just recently. Now IE starts with just the home page.

Is anyone else experiencing this? Any workaround? It is a very convenient feature that I'd like to have back...

TIA

Works fine here. Try resetting IE and see if that helps.

It started this morning. Previously I had no problem with this. But now, everytime I visit a website, say sevenforums, even though I logged in previously and checked off the option to remain logged in, and checked off the option at the bottom of the screen to have IE9 remember my password, I am asked again to enter my user name and password.
Did I somehow change a setting? Should I ask for a new laptop for Christmas?

A:IE9 No Longer Remembering Passwords

Do you have "Delete browsing history on exit" under Internet Options checked?? And if so, is "Cookies" checked, as one of the things to be deleted? If your cookies are being deleted, then that may be why you're getting logged out of websites, even though you have checked the option to remain logged in.

I have all of my folders set to default to a list view, but I have one folder on my desktop called "Games" (it's actually on the desktop, not a shortcut to a folder) with shortcuts to my game programs. There are only four icons in there now, so I keep the folder small and tell it to display the shortcuts as Icons, not as List. The folder often reverts, for no apparent reason, however, to a large size and a list view. Why is this? I have tried everything, even resetting all folder options and then setting this folder again (and obviously I have the folders remember settings options turned on). This folder and this folder alone constantly forgets its settings; my My Computer and My Documents windows, for example, remember their size exactly. Does anyone have any idea why this one folder constantly resets itself to this random state?
 

A:Folder not remembering info?

It's a common problem, and I have not heard of a perfect fix. But some times installing the latest service pack (SP) or updating your broswer will cure the problem.

Folks

On my work computer whenever I use google to search for something it retains what I have typed so that when I begin to type initial letters a string of past requests drops down, which is distracting. I know it is there to save me having to retype common requests but.... I'm not that busy and it is a nuisance. Is there anyway I can disable this function?

Look forward to hearing how to do it.

Pete

Since I've been using my new system running Windows XP Home, I've noticed on sites that require log-ins, that I have to re-login all the time when I visit. It's like somehow now my computer is not remembering to automatically remember my log-in information. It may be due to the new firewall installed called CA Internet Security Suite. I tried changing the settings to "medium security", but when I check again, the setting all revert to "high security." This was not a problem with the old computer running Windows 98. What's causing this and is there a fix?
 

A:New Computer not remembering log-in information

check your firewall config to see if you are blocking cookies. They contain that logon info so if blocked you will have to re-enter your info

Having Windows remember your passwords for logging on to certain sites is very convenient. My husband clicked "no" when prompted to have Windows remember his eBay password. Now he wishes he had clicked "yes." Is there a way to reactivate this? TKS

I just started seeing an issue with my external drives connected to my laptop running Win7 Home Premium x64. I have 2 external drives connected via USB to my laptop. In the past, when I unplugged the drives, and later reconnected them, the previously assigned drive letters (X: and Y: ) were again properly assigned to the two external drives. Lately, when I reconnect the USB drives, they get assigned the next drive letters in sequence (E: and F:, respectively). What is causing this behavior and how can I force them to remember their old "assigned" letter? I assigned the drive letters using the manage computer, disk management, change drive letter process. I always use the "safely remove hardware and eject media" feature prior to unplugging the drives... and I have not changed any behavior on my part.

Both stay connected to the same powered USB hub... rather than messing with the drives individually, I just use the remove hardware applet and then unplug the hub. I always use the same USB port for the hub, and the drive themselves stay connected to the hub... BTW, this used to work perfectly under both XP and Win7 ... until recently...

I used to have a triple-monitor setup, but one of the monitors died. Since I removed the other monitor, Windows has had trouble remembering the "Always On Top" status for: 1) The Taskbar 2) Gadgets and 3) Winamp.

I've restarted a number of times since I removed the monitor but still the problem persists. Windows will remember to keep an element on top for a little while, but eventually forgets until I manually click on the object to bring it back on top, where it remains until Windows next forgets. The taskbar no longer has a tickbox option for "Always on top". Winamp is set to be "Always On Top".

Does anyone have any ideas on how to resolve this problem? Thanks!
