Unhappy

no longer able to stay signed in like I used to


I recently downloaded SP3 so I don't know if that is the problem. But I always was able to stay logged in all of the time on certain pages (such as; iGoogle and my Hotmail account. All of a sudden all of the pages I visit on a regular basis always ask for my username and password! This just started recently and I haven't messed with any of my settings such as cookies and what not.

The info is stored in cookies...Many spyware/malware removal softwares have options to remove cookies...Did you recently make any changes with that kind of software?

Spyware Terminator, I bet


I don't have it on real time running but I do have it and run a scan from time to time. Do you think that is the problem?
As for the versions of IE and Firefox I am using. I am using IE7 and Firefox 2.0.0.14.
Thanks for the warm welcome to the forum and the fast response!

My System
Also you should check to see that your browsers are not set to clear cookies on exit. The setting would be in Tools>Internet Options for IE and Tools>Options>Privacy for FireFox.

Thanks John


I am extremely sorry I didn't get back to you right away. I get distracted easily and I had purchased a PC game called Roller Coaster Tycoon Platinum and any free moment I have goes to that!

ANYHOW, back to what our discussion was, I had already tried checking how my cookies preferences were set and they are fine. And many other websites I can stay logged in to for weeks sometimes.

Any other ideas? Thanks so much for all your help!

When I first switched to SuperAntiSpyware, it zapped cookies to some regular site. I had to add them to "trusted sites."
