Eventhough I tick the remember me boxes the programs do not automatically fill in the box and I have to login everytime I enter the site.
Could it be something on my antivirus? I have telewest pc guard. The problem only started a week ago

Many Thanks

You have probably set your particular browser to dump cookies after every session Ann.

What browser are you using?

The first thing I would look at is your AutoComplete settings.

Go to Internet Options in the Control Panel and click on the Content tab.

In the AutoComplete section click on the Settings button.

If I'm not mistaken User names and passwords on forms needs to be checked. Make sure you click OK and Apply if needed then OK again.

Also don't bother logging out Ann, just shut the site off when leaving.

Wolfeymole brings up a good point. If you log out that will delete the cookie that is storing the AutoComplete information.

I mean no disrespect Ann and perhaps you have seen that link before but it seems like there was an awful lot to absorb and try in the few minutes that intervened.

Thank you for all your help.

I have solved the problem with autocomplete. It was in pc guard privacy.
I am now going to uninstall pcguard and install Avast and Comodo.

Once again many thanks

Good Choice Anne, glad it is all sorted for you. You will be far better served. You may also want to consider adding at least one of the antimalware programs.

Yep. Dump the adaware and add the first two spyware/malware listed in the link above in post 14.

After that you should be pretty well protected.
