    Hi:
    Have had this problem before but not for a number of years so have forgotten how to deal with it. All of a sudden, Skype, my email (Windows Live Mail using GMail), and other accounts have begun asking for my password. Even after I enter the password and check "Remember this password," the computer doesn't remember it. Since Windows Live checks for new messages on several different accounts every minute or so, I'm being driven crazy. Can't figure out what setting has changed.
    Yesterday, I upgraded to Opera 10.51.33 but had no problems for 24 hours. My operating system is Vista, my computer is a Dell Inspiron 1520.
    Would appreciate any help!
    Many thanks,
    Jane

    Thanks, Mumbodog. Somehow, overnite, the system miraculously reset itself. If it happens again, I'll check my cookies.
