I hope this belongs here...but it's on an XP system...so here goes...

First, In IE, I must've accidently checked "Don't ask anymore" on the save password pop-up. I'd like to re-enable that but I can't find where.

And second, in Outlook Express, I can't look at some photos becasue OE will remove access to them. I can still see the Jpgs at the bottem of the message, but I cannot see a filename or put the photos on my harddrive. I also cant look at some pictures, period. Any way to disable that?

Thanks!

I'm not sure about your first question, but your second one can be solved by opening OE > Tools > Options > Security and then uncheck the box that says "Do not allow attachments to be saved blah, blah, blah"

I don't know about reinstating the pop up, but saving passwords, etc is always a security exposure. Also, if you enable the d/l of e-mail attachments in OE, always, always, always scan them before you open an attachment even if it appears to be from a trusted friend.

Thanks, that worked!

It is only a home PC and the passwords are not for anything like bank accounts. Just forums, and online games.

To get the password pop-up back, in IE go to Tools, Internet Options, Content, Click the Autocomplete button in Personal Information, and check the option "Prompt me to save passwords."

Though I gotta agree with Bill about saving passwords...
