Hello,

I'm using IE 6 (Build 6.0.2800.1106.xpsp2.021108-1929 to be exact).

I have configured it to prompt for passwords and to save logins and and passwords....

However, it never seems to store them ... and it alway prompts for passwords again even for logins for which passwords have been prompted for and stored earlier...

Also, there is another irritation which I remember encountering before on some other computer... when I do Control N to open a new window... the status bar does not show... it has to be manually enabled in View/Status Bar each time to show it....

This is in a new computer with Win XP Tablet PC edition Version 2002 Service Pack 1. On my other computer which has Win 98 with IE 5, I don't have any of these problems for the logins / passwords etc...

*Sigh*... the good old days @@

Thanks in Advance...

Have a look here:

OLEXP: Your Dial up Password Is Not Retained in Windows 2000 or Windows XP (Q264672)

As for the Status bar issue:

1) With (only one) IE open, click View, select: Status Bar
2) Right-click on IE's Toolbar and select: "Lock the Toolbar"
3) Hold down the Ctrl key and click the close button (upper right)
4) Open Windows Explorer, click View, select: Status Bar
5) Right-click on Explorer's Toolbar and select: "Lock the Toolbar"
6) Click Tools | Folder Options | View tab
7) Click the "Apply to all folders" button.
8) Hold down the Ctrl key and click the close button (upper right)

Cheers,
