Vista HP stopped remembering

Q: Vista HP stopped remembering

I bought a new HP computer about a year ago. I had to buy 2 GB of ram to add to it shortly after because it was so slow. Main problem now, it used to remember my sign on name and password for various websites. About 2-3 weeks ago it stopped remembering. I am getting real tired of having to type all that info everytime I want to log on. I wonder what went wrong? Any ideas? How to fix it? Thank you, Lynn731

Preferred Solution: Vista HP stopped remembering

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.)

Windows is remembering my passwords for the most part, however I had one place that I had entered the incorrect password and now it (Windows) will not remember that password. What do I need to do to get it to remember the password again?

A:Solved: Windows 7 has stopped remembering IE passwords

Check with the options at that webpage to see if there is a setting to remember the password or not. It may have been set NOT to remember it.
Also look for ALL of the Cookies for that site, and delete them, as the setting may be saved within a cookie.

Hi, My home build desktop with windows XP home has stopped remembering my login name on some of the sites I use a lot. Two of them happen to be my banks. Called banks and they said they had nothing to do with it. Don't know what I did but wish I could get it back to remembering. Anyone know what I can do? Thanks

A:computer stopped remembering login names

Hi drhugh -

I find that this is not unusual for me at certain times. You should not have your Bank as a Saved Login (password) name.
Every 2 or 3 months I need to reinstall several Login s and passwords (even my email will ask for it to check that I am using it.

I keep my passwords and Login names listed apart from other programs just for this type of event.

Only yesterday my wife needed to retype her Facebook Login and password, and I needed to retype my email login .

You should always change important passwords etc. (like banks) every few months to be more secure also.

No direct solution here, just a few words of advice -

Regards -

A:Laptop just stopped remembering wireless keys

When you connect to a "new" wireless network you have the option to save or not save the profile. Make sure that you are telling it to save. If the profile still does not save my suspicion would be a corrupted security application (security suite, anti-spyware, anti-virus, etc.).

I originally noticed this problem when my desktop icons started resizing and all moving to the left after reboot. I thought it may have been a resolution issue so tried all the settings e.g. autoarrange off etc. I tried programs that were supposed to lock the icons to no avail. I then noticed that files in one of my folders would also arrange themselves alphabetically (instead of sorted by file type as I usually have them) any time you closed the folder. This led me to believe that it was Vista not remembering my folder settings. After a search of the internet I tried the regedit fix (BagMRU) set to 20000 but this does not work either. Does anyone know anything else which might work?

I have a user with a Dell Latitude E4300 running our corporate Vista image, using a docking station and an external Dell 24" FP display.

Windows is not remembering the positioning of the external display upon undock/redock.

Previously, Windows would retain neither the positioning or resolution of the external display, but disabling TMM in the task scheduler has resolved at least the resolution part of the issue - still, it forgets the positioning of the external display.

Issue occurs both over VGA and DVI connections. I've removed/re-installed the latest drivers for the onboard video card from Dell's website, to no avail.

Any ideas, folks?

Thanks.

Hi guys. I recently installed Vista to a PC and installed IE8 (I dislike 9), and have an odd issue. When uploading pictures/files in IE8, it remembers the last folder I had open, but it doesn't remember the view type (large icons, small icons, tiles, etc) and always goes to list view.

On my other PC it used to remember view type perfectly in IE8, so not sure what the problem is. And oddly, Windows Explorer remembers the view type fine, so does "file download" in IE8, so it just seems to be "file upload" in IE8. Can anyone help?

A:In Vista, IE8 Upload Window not remembering Folder View Selected

Hi badweather and Welcome to TSF,

Normally Windows is indeed supposed to store these settings, there just one question: What icons/lists are you talking about inside Internet Explorer? Ir it an FTP or something like that you connect to where it isn't saved?

Otherwise just Open IE > Set it up the way you want it.
Choose File > Exit. Just to make sure it saves the settings.
Then re-open the application.

Please help I am about ready to throw my laptop out the window! I have a Compaq Presario V6000 (which might be my first problem) running Vista Premium (which might be my second problem).

My gripe for the week is it doesn't seem to save anything that has been done. It will save documents.. and some settings but everything else is out the window.

I have several programs.. Adobe Elements, Paintshop Pro, Pinnacle Studio 11, that bring up the annoying nag screen when ever I open them asking me to register, although I already registered. When I click on the link to register and try to re register, I get a notification that I have already registered. But Vista doesn't seem to understand this.

It also will not save some downloaded plugins java, flash, etc.. and it will not save my passwords in outlook. Everytime I open outlook I have to re-enter the passwords and even though I click the little box that says save password.. it doesn't.

Is it not writing to the registry properly? Has anyone else experienced this or have any suggestions besides wiping the harddrive and installing XP?

A:vista not "remembering" settings

As your windows vista does not seem to be into saving, then a coplete wipe and a format of the hard disc would not cause you any hardship. Re-installing the os may cure your problems. It could be something as simple as missing drivers. Have a look in windows update and download everything in sight, one of them may be what you need.

Googling around I have found this to be a very common problem for vista users with nvidia drivers!

Classic symptoms; Screen blacks out for a few seconds then comes back with a balloon saying " Driver nvlddmkm has stopped responding and fully recovered "
Well it didnt exactly fully recover, my game is now laggy as hell and I have to restart my computer to make game fps smooth again.

At first i thought maybe my power supply wasn't giving enough juice... No because a 500 watt power supply with a dedicated 36v rail sand a head room of 200 watts to blow should really OC this card nothing flat but its this damn driver situation Is really really messing things up for me here! >: O

Exactly what can I do to possibly fix this? I run the card at stocked settings since the drivers throw a fit when i OC it. Iv let it run at stock settings ever since I got it but now that the driver is NOT working right even at stock settings is setting me off.
And i though I heard ATI drivers were the ones that had more problems, LOL; where in the world did i hear that?

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?

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.

A:Folders Not Remembering View

Hello Johny,

It sounds like you are in a library. If so, then this is normal since all included folders in a library share the same folder view.

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,

I have the latest version of Firefox on Windows 10,

Is there anyway that I can force Facebook to not remember my email login? I have to sign out of Facebook every time. If I do not sign out and close the browser, my email is still waiting for me in the "Email or Phone" field. What I want to be able to do is be forced to type in my login email and password every time that I visit Facebook. When I close the browser, I want to see a blank "Email or Phone" and "Password" form field when I come back to the page for security reasons:

1.) I have tried saying "Never remember" this log in when clearing the Facebook website from the list of Firefox's stored websites.

2.) I have tried going through my stored sites and using the Block command in Firefox to prevent any automated login data from showing.

3.) I DO NOT WANT to clear all my cookies and cache. I am happy with remembering log in information for other sites I have saved, just Facebook's form fields I want to enter my email and password manually every time.

Is there anyway to do this? Or do I have to log out of Facebook every time or use Private Browsing if I really want both the email and password to be manually entered each time?

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!

Hi All

Would appreciate some help here!

I have a userform that opens up in excel and allows you to enter information in textboxes on the form.

What often happens is that I am busy entering data into a textbox and then need to switch to a different screen(Alt+tab) to obtain the data I need.

However when I switch the screen back to excel (and the userform) the cursor is no longer positioned in the text box where I left off (it is nowhere on the screen and I have to click in the text box again to be able to carry on typing).

Is there anyway that I can ensure that the cursor remains at the same spot even if I move away form the screen and then return later?

Thnx

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

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.

A:IE9 won't stop remembering a password!

Run CCleaner. That may eradicate it. Download CCleaner 3.20.1750 - FileHippo.com
