This is really a terrible annoyance! Anyone who can help??
PLEASE

I was having some problems with fuzzy icons and distorted desktop, so I restored my Windows98 from CD.
Everything seems to work fine now, except that my password won't save in my dial-up or outlook express.
I renamed my name.pwl and restarted my puter.
That doesn't help.
I tried to use Tweak UI to fix problem, no help.
I tried to put password into Tools Internet Connections Settings (save password) no help.
Anyone know what I can try next?
I'm stymied.

Packard Bell AMD K6 2
Windows 98
Outlook Express 6
IE 6.0.26

Thanks

Am curious if you did a "dirty" reinstall or clean...I ran into this not long ago and the dirty install did not work.....had to format and reinstall.

I think I read your ? correctly.....that this is NOT just in OE but on your dial up connection box as well.


Good Luck

Okay
I am able to save my OE password now, but no matter what I do, I can't seem to get my dial up connection to save password.
I have created a new dial up
still won't save
Now what?

Thanks

PS this is in Windows 98

The first thing to check on is to see if your being logged into Windows properly.

On the StartMenu, do you see an entry for "LogOff" and if so, does it list a UserName next to it or does it just say "LogOff" with no UserName next to it?
