I got to a site that is not saving my username & password setings. Even if I put in an incorrect password the box that would normally come up asking if I wanted to change the setting to the new one doesn't come up.

This only happens on opne of my computers and my other computer still has the username & password saved for that site.

What setting has changed ?

For a web page based password request, you need to find the cookie for the site in question and delete it.

For password prompt from IE, go to tools, internet options, content, autocomplete and turn on the option to remember passwords.

Thanks Phoenix but I've turned on the remember password option in IE's Autocomplete section.

Where do I find the cookies fo the particular site so I can delete that.

Other sites save my settings as normal.

There isn't a listing for that particular site in my cookies folder.
