Well the title says it all. Several machines, all XP pro, wont save internet passwords (hotmail, yahoo, slashdot, tsg, etc) no matter how hard you check the "save password" box. Also, the internet history is nonfunctional.
One: is anyone else having this (thinking its a result of the last round of patches)
Two: anyone know how to fix it?
thx

I haven't heard of any password or Internet history trouble and have XP pro on 3 machines and downloaded critical patches on 10/15. Others?

You might try this: Start/(settings)/control panel/user accounts, select your sign in name. Go to Manage my network passwords, select user name, remove and save the change. Delete all the names (addresses and passports). Your email addresses (passports) won't display and you'll be prompted to sign in as new account. Sign in and see if that helps and saves passwords.

Not sure about the Internet history. Does anything look unusual in the event viewer when trouble began?

Couple of other things you might try:

a) uninstall 1 patch at a a time, and reboot if prompted (logged in as administrator);
b) restore and test before critical patches;
c) pop in xp cdr and use the system file checker
