    Hi. This is essentially the same question asked in tech support guy post #370015 except that I'm running XP Home, not XP Pro. (The Pro solution doesn't work for XP Home.) When I take my personal laptop to work, I have to log into the network to use any network resources, such as shared drives, proxy server etc. It's very annoying because EVERY time I open IE, I need to enter my server/username and password to access the proxy server. My understanding is that before XP SP2, there was a checkbox that asked if you wanted to remember your password & username, which is now gone.

    Let me make this clear: I'm NOT asking to have IE remember internet passwords. And this is not a network administration issue -- my admin told me it was a service pack issue on my computer. Any suggestions? I'm going bonkers because I have to enter my network password every thirty seconds!!
