I have been looking in the settings for a way to put a password on the internet that doesn't ask me to supply a password at every site. How can I do this.

If you are saying , every time you go back to a site you have already set a password & it reasks you , the info below may help .

If it is not that , I can't help .

Microsoft Internet Explorer (version 5 or later) has an AutoComplete feature that helps you
fill in Web-based forms. If the feature is enabled, each time you submit data in a form, the
information is encrypted and stored on your local machine. The next time you encounter a form
field with the same internal field name, IE tries to complete that field automatically. As
soon as you type a letter that matches the beginning of any recorded value for that field, IE
displays a list of possible values from which you can choose. To see all saved values, you
press the Down Arrow.

The Internet Options applet in Control Panel lets you turn AutoComplete on and off and clear
all its recorded data. It doesn't, however, let you clear form fields selectively or view the
stored data. This issue's utility, AutoWhat? 2, fills the gap. With AutoWhat? 2, you can view
what's stored for each input field name, delete incorrect values, and preload the system with
additional values.

AutoWhat? was originally released as a PC Magazine Extra utility in November 1999. Version 2
adds support for Windows NT–based operating systems. AutoWhat? 2 requires Internet Explorer 5
or later and runs under Windows 95, 98, Me, NT 4.0, 2000, and XP.

Thanks jmatt, but what I am looking for is to put a password on internet access itself. when I click on the IE icon, I want a password to be needed to access the program. Can it be done, or do I need a thrid party software like NetNanny to do it?
