    Having Windows remember your passwords for logging on to certain sites is very convenient. My husband clicked "no" when prompted to have Windows remember his eBay password. Now he wishes he had clicked "yes." Is there a way to reactivate this? TKS

    Hello:
    In internet explorer at the top is a 'tools' menu, click that and choose 'internet options' once that is open the tabs along the top, click 'content'. In content there is a 'auto complete' button, click that. In there is the option to check 'prompt me for passwords', click it, then apply and then OK.

    Melodi, thanks for your reply. However, "prompt me for passwords" is already checked. I tried unchecking, clicking OK, closing, then going back into "content" and putting back "prompt me for passwords". Still doesn't work. (My OS is Windows 98 SE). EBay remembers my username and password (because I clicked yes) but won't remember my husband's since he clicked "no." Any other ideas? TKS.

    Go back into tools, internet options, general tab, delete your cookies, close out of IE, reopen and have him go back to ebay, it should prompt him again.
