IE not remembering website passwords

by trek 1956 / August 27, 2009 4:38 AM PDT

I visit a lot of gaming and game-related websites that require you to register and create a login. I usually click "yes" to remember the password. A while back I visited a site that I didn't want to remember the password. Whatever option I selected I turned this feature off. My old "remembered" passwords are still there but I can add any new "remembered" passwords.

I meant to say the system won't ask me if I want to remember the new password. Oops.

Hi Open IE and at the top of the browser look for tools.........click open the tools bar and in the dropdown menu look for internet options......under internet options look for content at the top of the box.........there should be a place to mark to save passwords....you will have to put a check in the box...........i have been using the newer versions of IE so I hope that with IE6 the settings I have described are the right ones...........hope this helps.
