    hey guys thanks a lot for the help last time, but now i have a new question:

    i did some registry tweaks on xp, its all good except now my machine won't remember any passwords
    i backed up my registry before i did anything so i can always go back but i was wondering if there is a service i need to turn back on to get it remembering again or if it is something else because i can't figure it out

    thanks,
    kaver

    Talking about website passwords?

    In IE, tools, internet options, content tab, autocomplete, check "user names and passwords on forms".

    oh by the way i do have that stuff checked by my main concern is i hate having to type out passwords for my email account and its a "universal"
    problem because all the different email programs on all the xp identities won't remember passwords even if the program is specified to do so......so i know it's deeper than the programs itself but im clueless right now on what i should do so it can remember....
