IE6 won't remember password for one site

Q: IE6 won't remember password for one site

On Win2000 IE6 remembers passwords for all sites I visit but one. It asks each visit if I want it to remember and I click YES, but it doesn't remember. Anybody have any suggestions to get it to remember this password for me?

Preferred Solution: IE6 won't remember password for one site

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.)

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.

A:Remember Password in IE

The following applies to Internet Explorer 11:

All IE11 saved passwords are stored encrypted n Windows Registry under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\IntelliForms\FormData:
The information is completely encrypted and practically impossible for someone else outside your own network to access. As long as your Windows user account is protected with a strong password it is safe to let IE11 to store your login credentials.

An example of how it works then with saved credentials. I want to check my Outlook.com mail using IE11. On Sign In page I start typing my username, after a few letters IE shows me stored users starting with that character combination:
I select my email address, IE11 now automatically retrieves the password and inserts it to its place and I can log in:
Simple and safe. Brink has made an excellent tutorial about IE11 credentials, see it here.

I have a VERY annoying probelm.

My Account Settings are set to "Remember Password" tick.

My Account is set to refresh (Send/Receive) every few minutes.

Everytime it does so (if I send or receive), the email password prompter for Hotmail Appears with the 'Password Remember' box UNticked. I tick it and pres OK, but the box appears about every 3 minutes.

According to all my settings, it is set to remember my password, but evidently it continues to prompt me for my password every few minutes.

Furthermore, I have sent 2 emails in the last hour, with no attachments, just a few KB each, and both are still sitting idly in my Outbox. Why!!!???

This problem has been exacerbated in the last few days for some reason.

I would praise the person who can reconcile this for me.

THANK YOU!

P.S. I use XP Home and Office 2007

A:Remember My Password!

I would say this is a issue with the saved password in your email client and the password used for hotmail. If the password in the email client is saved as an old password evertime it tries to reconnect it will use that saved password. It will then prompt you from hotmail to enter the correct password. I would have a look at the mail section in control panel and change the saved password in you email client i.e outlook express.

Do you use a 3rd party Antivirus? Most of them these days have a vault that will log into a site for you via Autofill.
There are probably independent programs that do it also, just be careful who you get one from. Beware of backdoors.

I think 8 uses Credential Manager (Winkey+S type Credential Manager)

Here is a little info on the stock Vault. After a little reading I found that it works for IE specifically.

Hi, There is a general policy on the Forum not to provide methods to bypass Windows log-on passwords, however a local computer shop would be able to do this for you. Another option, if all personal data etc is backed-up, would be to reset the notebook to its 'Factory Condition' and then set it up from the beginning ? if you don?t have Recovery Media, the notebook will have shipped with a Recovery Partition which can be accessed at boot - ie shutdown the notebook, then start tapping away at f11 as soon as you power on. A full guide on this can be found on the following link. http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c01867418 Regards, DP-K
