In the past, I only had to sign in once in a while to open the IE and get to my homepage, especially after I run CC cleaner etc. and most of the cookies are gone. Now I have to do it almost every time. I have to sign in on the Windows Live page where I enter my Hotmail address and password, then I always check 'Remember me' and ' Remember my password'. This happens maybe every second time when I start using the computer. What have I done to create this problem?:confused: Any suggestions please. Thanks.

CC Cleaner does clear most password coookies. You have to untick the option within CC Cleaner to prevent this.

Thanks...I couldn't find the term 'password cookies' specifically in CC but there are 2 cookies that are called 'live.com' and 'login.live.com'. Perhaps I could 'save' those? Interestingly, today, I booted up and I got my homepage and IE without having to sign in, but later on, when I closed my browser and tried to open it later, I did have to log in....and I didn't 'clean' anything in the meantime.

The cookies you want to save will not normally have any reference to password or login on them.

The best way is use CCleaner and clean out everything and then log in to the site you want to
keep then save it to the right side.

With the new version 3.02 of CCleaner you can right click the saved cookies window and save them to your hard drive
and re-import them if you lose them just like you can do in IE(if you use it). I save both just in case of a screw up.

Also be sure you don't have "Delete browsing history on exit" ticked in the following image.

Some sites, like financial ones, don't use cookies so you have to log in every time as a security feature.

PS-Forgot this one. Make sure on you Vista machine you don't have "InPrivate Browsing" ticked under "Safety" on your toolbar.
