IE11 not saving cookies on exit (Windows 10 1803)

Q: IE11 not saving cookies on exit (Windows 10 1803)

The issue is that if I go to a site that authenticates with SSO I am able to get in without needing to re-enter credentials. But if I get a link in Outlook and I have signed into SSO but have closed IE, then IE doesn't authenticate me with my already
entered credentials and asks me to do it again. If IE is open and the link will work.
If I sign into SSO with Chrome, Firefox or Edge and close the browser then click the link it will open successfully in those browsers without requesting a new sign in. On IE11 this fails. It worked on build 1709.
Does anyone know what changed? Is this something that we can work around? We still have two products that require IE11 and they are about 1-2 years away from having a non-IE compatible version so I need to extend IE's life a little more.

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.)

I am extremely new to computers and my son and I now have one. I believe he has made changes to his computer to hide his actions from me (hes 10 and knows more about computers than I),

*because his Internet Explorer history only saves sites sporadically it seems,
*and downloads are also not saving, and neither are cookies.

I'm sure other things are not saving as well.

*I have tried to reset his IE settings to default, and it did nothing.

I have noticed that the few cookies that are in his Temporary Internet files are all searches for Windows how-tos' involving Indexing his computer, Deleting Browsing History, and System Restore. I'm not sure if him messing with these settings could have caused his computer to not save anything, or what.

*Should I try to restore Internet History files first, and then try a System Restore? Or should I just do/or do not do a System Restore at all and try something else?

I'm really worried about what he might be hiding from me and would like to resolve this so I can monitor his computer use. Also, if there would be another part of the website I could post this that might be more helpful, Please let me know. Thanks

A:IE 9 history not saving, downloads not saving, nor cookies.

He might be using the 'In Private' mode - this does not save any cookies, history, or anything at all. Downloads are still saved, though, but he can delete those just like any other file, of course.

Hi everyone! New forum member here working for a company of about 100,000 clients. We are seeing a high number of IE11 deployment failures in our enterprise and several of my end users, like many others in this forum, are not getting IE11 to install properly. I've attached the IE11_Main and CBS log files of one of my users who seems to be having one of the more common issues that we can't seem to pinpoint a root cause for.

We've run the Windows Update Diagnostic, SURT, performed a clean boot, installed all pre-requisites, and run the offline installer. While at least one of these steps has helped in a few cases, I have several where this does not help. Thanks in advance!

Every time I open a Word document and then close it, Word XP offers to save changes, even when there were no changes. It wasn't doing this originally.

I can hardly believe it.  I just replaced the motherboard because of possibly the same issue, and it has happened again.  After using the BIOS setup to successfully turn off "Secure Boot" and turn on "Legacy Boot" (to get a  Windows 7 dual-boot install to start again), all was good.  Windows 8.1 would start, as would Windows 7.  My problem began (again?) when I chose to check the BIOS version in BIOS setup, opening it with F10.  There I could see it and make changes to other BIOS functions as usual, but I didn't.  Instead, I just wanted to "Exit without saving changes", which I chose to do.  It seemingly restarted with a backlit screen that was black.  It went no further, so after waiting a minute, I forced it off by holding the power button.  From then on, when turning it on, I am presented with a blank screen with no boot at all (no beeps or OS audio) and just a  blank (unlit backlight) screen.  So far, no amount of HP_TOOLS flash drive BIOS recovery boots with the combination windows/Super-key and B held down, has done the trick.  Using that trick, I see the flash drive LED flicker a bit when starting (about 5 seconds) and then it just stays lit solid.  From that pont, I've tried waiting more than ten minutes before forcing it off with the power button held.  I've also tried that after clearing the CMOS by unplugging the CR2032 battery for minutes at a time.  The flash drive's LED does not even...

I am trying to track down why cookies are being deleted from my Windows 7 system. The system is a member of AD and managed via Group Policy. I have checked all GPOs (Computer and User) and cannot find any IE setting that would force deletion of IE cookies.

I suspected 3rd party AV software may have been deleting cookies. I can confirm the AV software is deleting certain "tracking cookies" but not cookie I have an issue with. I have ran full on-demand scans as well as active-scans (ran at pre-boot
and during the day), but the problem cookie is not removed.
I also relocated the "Temporary Internet Files" location to an alternate location, but the issue still persists. Note, it's just the cookie that is being deleted, not any other temporary internet files.

I've downloaded IECookiesView & FolderChangesView (both from nirsoft) and and trying to track changes to cookies and the cookie folder itself. I cannot manually reproduce the issue, it appears to he random.
I have added the specific web server to the "Local Intranet Zone" and current level for this zone is Medium-low.
Any suggestions welcome.

Sorry if this is the wrong forum, but I searched the site and found nothing relevant to this problem. Ever since the Patch Tuesday updates of 11/12/14, the system has been building temporary internet files and cookies by huge amounts even when IE11 has not been selected from the desktop. I can go in as the Admin. and delete all of the temporary internet folders and cookie folders that I am allowed to. There are some that are blocked even from the Admin., reboot the system with no applications launced, and watch the files build. In 30 minutes, there will hundreds of files and dozens of cookies created, even though no browser was launched. The system has two users defined, the Admin and the one we use for normal operation. Our grandkids use this system, hence the second user without Admin rights. IE11 is used only by my wife, as I use FF for my browsing (with AdBlock Plus & Ghostery enabled). We have a standing policy of running CCleaner (v4.19) after every browsing session. I have also noticed that the process SVCHOST LOCAL SERVICE will have many instances running. As many as 10 to 20 of them. I also can stop the browser service for awhile and have to do so to get rid of all of the temporary internet files and the extra SVCHOST processes. If left alone, the browser service will start up and the runaway begins anew. I know IE is integral with Win7. Also the temporary internet files point to html pages we have never gone to.

A:IE11 Temporary Internet Files & Cookies W/O IE Loaded.

I think I found the reason for all of the IE activity. I ran MSERT.EXE last night and it found "win32 trojan downloader" on the system and removed it. It appears that fixed the problem. Here's a link to MSERT.EXE. I ran a full scan as the quick scan didn't find anything. I also went and deleted all of the existing temporary internet files that were on the system.

Microsoft Safety Scanner - Free Virus Scan with the Microsoft Safety Scanner

Update: It's been nearly 24 hours since MSERT.EXE ran and the runaway IE file building has ceased. The system has been shutdown and booted three times in that period and no repeat of the problem. I'm going to call this one solved.

Team,
We have done a fix to have our cookies serving only through SSL in the web.config of our application - cookieRequireSSL="true" and we have few cookies like .ASPXROLES, ASP.NET_SessionID which were not served in secured way. Now, after our setting
in the web.config file, we could see the changes getting reflected in Edge, Chrome browser, we could see a tick mark in the secure box for those cookies in those browsers. 
However, in IE 11, we are unable to see the tick marks, neither it shows as secured nor unsecured. Any helps on this would be appreciated.

Some sites, apparently this one is about to have the same problem, cannot place cookies, but sometimes can, on my Asus laptop hard drive.

Three sites so far... I have allow cookies in both FF35. and IE 11; however, when I login , I get logged right back out when I click on anything like a forum link to a particular thread type. Like forums or web mail ( this is on another site).

On these forums, I went to tutorials and was logged out. I was able to log back in and post this.

I remember this Windows 8.1 laptop installed a security update on Feb 12. I remember a Windows update installing on Friday 13. But the second one isn't in the list.

I have AVG paid firewall and anti-virus I keep up to date, as well as Malwarebytes.

Cache in FF35 clears when I close the browser. I have cleared the cache in IE 11. Both multiple times.

I did see some Certificates in FF I have no idea how they got there. Spain and China from the look of them. Some mention they are China.

I deleted them. No difference.

Any suggestions on how to fix this ?

Thanks !

edit: Now 8 sites wont let me in. It seems to be increasing as I look over various forums I log into regularly. I'm going to scan my computer for trojans.

edit 2: I checked my firewall logs... that is blocking cookies from being placed on my hard drive. No trojans found.

I'm having a heck of a time with IE9 on Win7 here.

Often when either the browser crashes or the computer crashes and I have to reboot without being able to complete a proper log-off, IE will lose certain cookies.

For example, after restarting some forums will have forgotten my login information. I don't use IE's "Remember my password" feature but rather the one on the forum itself.

Some forums require logging back in, others don't. Facebook will require logging back in, and Google forgets the "Never show instant results" search preference that I set.

Any tips? I'm not using In Private browsing and IE is not set to clear cookies on exit. It only happens when there's a crash.

Thanks.

I'm running a Dell Inspiron with XP SP 3 and IE 7.
I upgraded to IE8, and somewhere along the line I found that when I tried to login to Amazon, Flickr etc, it would not allow me as cookies weren't enabled.

I have done the obvious checks in IE8 to ensure they are indeed enabled, I have also shut down my CIS to ensure that does nto interfere with cookies, although I do know that it has no control over the transport and storage of cookies. I have also tried Opera and Chrome with no luck.

I have tonight reverted back to IE7 in case IE8 was the problem, but it has made no difference.
I can log into this forum, which I'm sure will use cookies, yet not Amazon or Flickr. Both those sites are at a loss as to why I can't login, and Flickr has actually told me they can't help me any further as the issue is not theirs.

So, odd problem that I've never come across before, and can't find a resolution to.
I would appreciate any ideas that anyone can come up with.

I'm having a few problems with IE 9.

For some reason, IE 9 is not saving my cookies to certain sites, such as Yahoo! or facebook. I constantly have to re-sign into the sites, even while I'm on the sites. I've already checked my sign in settings for both sites, and they remain unchanged (Yahoo! is set to the maximum sign-in setting and so is fb). This issue is not limited to just those sites, but it's more frequent with those two sites than the others.

I've set the browser settings to Accept all cookies and changed the settings under the privacy tab to accept all first party cookies (I blocked third party cookies since I was told they sometimes contribute to spam). I have uninstalled and reinstalled IE 9 twice, but to no avail.

I installed Firefox 4 as a backup browser, and I haven't had those problems. I want to try to use IE 9 since I've been a loyal user for years, but these issues are causing me to want to fully switch. Please help.

I'm running IE9- only because my wife shares this machine and got first dibs on Waterfox. But that's another post.

When I log into my favorite sites, such as this one, IE9 save my log-in info no problem, until I shut down the computer. If I boot up from shutdown or restart, it's as if all my cookies cleared, and I have to log into everything all over again. I suspect there may be a setting I'm overlooking. Even comparing this version of 9 to the one on my laptop (the screen shot seems to be different on each), I can't see any settings that have changed.

Now when I try to update it stops at 80% and comes up with the message 'We cant install updates because other updates are in progress.' Before this it came up with ERROR 0xc1900107.

No other updates are running (as far as I can tell) I also ran system file checker which came back fine.

I finally downloaded the update assistant but it doesn't work that way either.

Any help would be really appreciated!

I have multiple Lenovo laptops in the family. I recently noticed a Z580 had not had any OS updates since December 2017. So I fiddled with it some (it has been running Windows 10 for a couple of years without issue) and upgraded to Win10 1803. This was a huge mistake as I was unaware that the Z580 has hardware components not compatible with Win 10... even though it's been running Win10 for years. After the upgrade to 1803, the PC boots to a blue screenn where it wants me to choose the system language, etc. IE, it has totally lost the operating system and it can't find anything to roll back to in recovery. I was perfectly happy with Win 8.1 and only upgraded to Win10 figuring it was an inevitable upgrade. I plan to replace the HDD with a SSD and believe I can get the data from the HDD. But I"m stumped as to what OS I should put back on the Z580, since it came preinstalled. Is the Windows key embedded in the ROM? I don't have a Windows key for this 5 year old laptop and don't recall seeing one when we bought it. Any suggestions?

I was running a program on my Windows 10 computer Build 1709 that was located on my Windows 2003 server. The executable was located on the server. I upgraded to 1803 and it no longer works. A second computer did the same thing and I was able to go back to build 1709 and it started working again. I can't go back on the computer that still has 1803 because it's been more than 10 days or 7 or whatever. Research was pointing to the probability it was an SMB share issue. I saw that supposedly 1803 does not support SMBV1 which is what Server 2003 is using. However, I go into the Windows features settings and is shows SMBv1 checked off. When I run -get smbconfiguration or whatever in powershell it returns the version as 1.5. Anyway, I also saw some suggest to install AVG or Avast which disables Defender. I've done that and did not work. I've tried running it in compatibility mode and that didn't work. Looking for suggestions. If it is an SMB issue, there is no way we are upgrading the server at this time. I can resinstall Windows on the workstation if I have to, but I would love to avoid it enough that I joined this site and posted for the first time hoping someone can offer another suggestion. Thanks.

After upgrading Windows 10 to the April 2018 Update (Windows version 1803), Windows Hello is no longer available on my Lenovo X1 Carbon 5th Generation ultrabook, and drivers for the Synaptics WBD (SGX enabled) biometric fingerprint reader show as failing to load in Device Manager.  This is despite registry settings, group policies, and a PIN being set up to enable biometric scanning (the fingerprint scanner worked previously). Is anyone able to assist to enable the Windows Hello fingerprint scanner under Windows 10 version 1803? Thank you.  

A:Windows 10 April 2018 Update (1803): Windows Hello / Synaptics WBD (SGX enabled) Fingerprint Reader

And you have the lastet 5.2.3531.26 version of the Synaptics driver released on May 3, 2018 already installed?

Windows 10 Home (x64) Version 1803 (build 17134.320)

I'm getting all kinds of crash loops in Windows Explorer from doing the simplest of task like for example installing Sims City from a ROM or just copying files from a USB drive to SD card. I did disable Cortana using the registry edit method and I've heard this could be the problem.

Hello guys: I have Windows 10 ver 1709 on my laptop which is working great. I have tried instaling Windows 10 ver 1803 two times already (with one month gap) on my laptop without success. When it finishes installing and reboots the computer, it never recovers from it. I see a black screen where mouse is enabled and nothing else. Both times, I have reverted back to version 1709. I have checked Lenovo's portal for my computer and I dont see any software/driver upgrades that I need that were released in the last 180 days. Can anyone tell me if I need to upgrade any driver before trying the upgrade? I have the following specs: Product: 20378BIOS: 9ECN43WW(V3.03)
