Q: How to update one site password in IE please?

I'm confused ... have battled my way around the Tutorial section but have either missed or failed to find the answer to my issue due mostly to being rather techy dim.

I recently had to change a password to one particular site and would like to be able to add/change this update to my saved passwords rather than be reminded the existing password no longer works in IE 11.

Can some kind person help me do this please?

Preferred Solution: How to update one site password in IE please?

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Because of a currently running playback in Chrome, I don't have IE open right now, can't see the settings. Did you, in Internet Options, set IE to save passwords?

How to force IE 11 to ask for saving credentials again for just one web site, after having accidentally sellect not to remember password for that particular site. Please, take into account that:


- I'm totally aware that storing credentials is not a good security practice, but in my particular case this is what I need to do.

- I know that reseting IE or similar approachs will do the job, but doing that I'll lost more tan 70 web sites credentials. I need a solution not involving loose all the web credentials stored.
- I also know that there is way to do the trick "lying" to IE using a modified but similar username, but this only works in some web sites, depending on the kind of login mechanism used. In my particulare case this trick also does not work.
- I also know that there was a registry hack for this particular problem, but this does not work with IE last versions.


Any help would be very apreciated.

Dear Friend,
I am Anil from India. I have recently joined the forum after struggling for a week to stablise my unstable PC. I used to have some Anti Virus software on my pc before few years. But since last few years I was not having any AV software as this PC was not being used for surfing etc.
Since I started to use it again for surfing, downloading etc., I wanted to instal avast AV software. I installed it from some recent installer file with me. But when it tried to update the virus database, I got the message that "can't connect to server". Then I tried to open avast.com. But I again got the error message "The page cannot be displayed". Then I uninstalled the avast and tried to open other antivirus sites like norton, mcafee, avg etc., but all failed.
Then I tried to update my system using automatoc update utility. But again failed. microsoft.com also failed to open.
I use GPRS connection through cellular connection to browse the network.
Now I have downloaded and installed Hijack This.

HP Envy 17 3D (M0del: LV045UA#ABA) with Radeon 6850M and Mobile Intel HD Graphics.

On 9/3/11 the Microsoft update site provided a 150+ MB update for the video system. After the update downloaded and began to install, the video system crashed (the screen went blank) and did not recover after more than an hour.

I then performed a system image restore from a backup external hard drive. I tried again to install the update and again the video system crashed.

Anyone else experience similar problems with this update?

A:Update From Microsoft Update Site Crashes Video System

LMC, welcome to the Seven Forums.

What happened is your laptop has switchable graphics and will only work properly with the driver from the laptop manufacturer, in your case HP (or any other laptop with switchable graphics). Problem is that WU is essential stupid in that it doesn't know that and only sees one or the other of the video cards in the laptop, and as a result offers and installs one that won't work with it.

In this case stop trying to install it as it will never work. Just hide the update in WU so you don't see it and only ever install a video card driver update from HP.

I can not install the latest .NET FRAMEWORK. It downloads ok, but when I select to install it I am told that there is another intallation in process and I need to finish that one first.

This has gone one for three weeks now. As a result I can no longer open Windows MSGR. I am told by the computer that maybe I should try to download and reinstall it. But when I try to reinstall it, I get the message that "another installation is in progress..."

I have consulted with the helpers at Mircrosoft. They offered many solutions. All of which I tried. But I guess the problem was too much for them, as I have not had a responce from my last failed attempt (10 days ago !)

Also, on a different level of sophistication. Last year I downloaded a paid version of Norton Internet Security. The supbsription expired, but be dammed if I can delete program !!

~No previous problems with this~

At home I have to use Dial-Up, because where I live DSL and Cable are not available yet.

The other day I took my laptop to school, I connected to the service, but I could not access any sites, I kept getting the page error message.

So, I brought my LT home and connected to my dial-up, now I am unable to access any webpage that involves a password, I can get to the login page, but then I get the "cannot open page error".

I have reformatted, and it is still doing the same thing...

Any ideas?

And what setting do I need to change to access sites after I am connected to the wireless at school?

I did turn pop-up blocker, my firewall, cleaned my cookies and temp files, I am dumb-founded right now!

I know this is something simple!

Until recently, when my.yahoo opened on booting, it would open to my customized page. However, when I now boot up, my.yahoo needs my username and pw to open. I'm not sure why this is happening (could it be my use of CCleaner?), but would like to be able to have certain sites that have usernames and pw's to open automatically...can this be done?

A:Opening web site without having to enter password?

If you clean off the cookies that save your login then you will have to log in when you go to the site. Go in CCleaner and uncheck the Cookies option in the browser you use. That should save your login cookie info.

Another way if your browser supports LastPass is to use LastPass extension. It will fill in user name and password and then you just click Login button.

I use LastPass on Chromium, Firefox and Opera. Seems to work very well.

Hi folks

Just a quick question for you. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I am looking to rerelease my very simple www site soon - mainly for family comms and kids etc and I would like to include a limited restricted area, maybe a few pages etc where I could include work related material and that I could allow certain people to access when I provided them with a password etc..

I have found free password hosting companies on the web which all look good and reasonable, but is there a more pragmatic way that I could do it myself? I have heard of the htpasswrd feature but do not know how to implement it. Would anyone be willing to explain how I could utilise this please?

I have XP, FP2002 and am willing to learn - any ideas?

John

Edit - thought I should add that I have just found out that the htpasswrd file is the file that contains the user/member/password info and that I need a script to manage this - is this correct? If so, how and where do I use the script file?

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.

I've searched all over the place for this same issue with no luck. I've come IE won't save passwords, IE won't prompt to save passwords, and IE won't save passwords on certain sites, but I have been unable to find why on one computer it will prompt to save
the password for a site but it won't prompt to save on that same site on a different computer with the same browser.

So let me start by saying this, both computers are the same model, have the same OS, and same version of IE. (Dell OptiPlex 3010, Windows 7 Pro SP1 x64, and IE 11). I have verified the site in question allows passwords to be saved. It works on one computer
and not the other. Even if we try the same username. The company that runs the site has also verified this (Can't post the site name for privacy reasons).
I set this new user up on this computer and have done the following:
1. Made sure that prompting to save passwords was enabled in Internet options
2. Reset IE to defaults
3. Added to site to compatibility list
4. Added site to trusted sites
5. Restarted computer
6. Tested password prompt worked on another site
I know this is kind of vague, but if I am missing anything it would be greatly appreciated if someone could point it out.

Thanks in advance.

The fact that one of my few passwords has been used to sign up to a website I've never heard of/ didn't sign up for.. makes me wonder what other info and other passwords whoever signed up for this has of mine.. I searched the site name and found another person 2 months ago had the same exact problem. He received the same email with his password in the email. 
 
What steps do I need to take to protect myself? I'm scared of logging into any bank accounts on my computer to change passwords. I feel like doing so, will only give them more information!

When I signed on to my computer about 15 minutes ago I tried to log-in to my bank account using the same user name and password that has been working but it said I was wrong and so it froze my account.   So I requested an email to reset my password with them and I am still waiting for it.

I'm a volunteer with Learning Life, an educational non-profit. Our Wordpress site (letlearninglive.org) hasn't been updated to the latest version and our current version is 3.2.8. I'm not sure if the widgets installed in the site's sidebar are being affected by this as they don't display the content on the site. So far the widgets that are not working are twitter timelines, search bar, and comment boxes, all of which did, however, work on a mock-up Wordpress site we created, which presumably had a more recent version of Wordpress.
 
If we do indeed need to update to the latest Wordpress version, will we need to edit some of our pages to accommodate the latest version.

A:Should I update my Wordpress site

If you moved your site from an newer version of Wordpress to an order version it may break some of the functionality.  The widgets or plugins may need features that are in the newer Wordpress.  You should upgrade your Wordpress to the latest version.  It is also good to keep Wordpress updated to the latest version to make sure it has the latest security patches.  Always backup before performing an upgrade.

Hi,
I cannot get to the windows update site on this XP machine in either firefox or IE8. Beofre contacting you, I ran a full malwarebytes scan and AVG2011 virus check which found and removed some stuff, but the problem still remains. I have followed the instructions in the sticky post, and hope that I have run the dds and gmer scans correctly. DDS log embedded here :

A:Cannot get to windows update site

Good evening. Download TDSSKiller.zip from Kaspersky from here and save it to your Desktop. You will then need to extract the file(s) from the zipped folder.
To do this: Right-click on the zipped folder and from the menu that appears, click on Extract All...
In the Extraction Wizard window that opens, click on Next> and in the next window that appears, click on Next> again.
In the final window, click on Finish
Please close all open programs as this may result in a reboot being necessary.
Double click TDSSKiller.exe to begin. Click Start scan and allow the tool to do just that. One the scan has completed, if the tool has identified anything allow it to carry out it's default action(s) - you'll need to click Continue where appropriate. Finally, if it prompts you to reboot your machine, please click Reboot Now and ensure that your machine does so.
If the scan finds nothing, please click the Report button and let me have a copy of the text file that opens. If you reboot your machine, the log, which i'd like to see, will be located at the root of you hard drive as C:\TDSSKiller.Version_Date_Time_log.txt.
Please check that you get the one with the right date and time.

Hello,

I have noticed a while ago that I cannot connect to Microsoft download sites or Windows Update site. When I ping these sites, it resolves to 127.0.0.1. For this reason, I can't update the definitions for Security Essentials. Also I cannot connect to update sites for Malwarebytes, Eset Nod32, Comodo.

Avira and Trojan Remover can connect though. I have run the TDSSKiller, Trojan Remover, but nothing has been found. I have run gmer as well, but it seems to have not found anything. Pasted the HT, DDS, and attached ark.txt and attach.txt. I had to attach ark.txt because it was huge. (around 544kb)

I have a problem with the windows update site.

I have tried all I can think of to fix this.

When I access the update site and press either the express or custom buttons to check for updates the progress bars start but never stop.

I can access the Microsoft downloads site and download from there fine.

The update site just freezes on the progress bars moving.

Any help appreciated.

I have run every suggestion you have mentioned for posting hijack this logs.

The security center shows automatic updates are enabled.
you guys are still looking over my log, but this seems to be serious since there are messages on forum pages to update NOW.

I welcome any suggestions you have.

Would running XP Repair help at all?

I do have admin rights, can't find any network policy issues especially since my laptop functions normaly on the same router.

I am using a speedstream 4100 from ATT.

Thanks a lot.
