Losing Remembered Logins

    ShinyTop I know what is right or wrong!

    Beginning about a week ago I started randomly losing remembered logins. Sites I have been visiting for years without having to constantly enter username and login are now requiring it. I say randomly because I may be good for a couple days and then need to login again. It has even happened without logging out of the computer or the site. This site is one. One is TVGuide.com which is losing everything. Even when I sign back in it has forgotten my location and channel preferences.

    Any ideas what could have changed?

    Try deleting all cookies and stored information. It sounds if there's a corrupt cookie or file associated with the browser. Tell the sites to remember everything from scratch.

    Firefox user?

    This happened to me after a power surge/outage with Firefox a few weeks ago.

    Fix that worked for me..

    No, IE 8 user. I have deleted cookies and time will tell.

    It must have been a corrupted cookie since it has not lost login information since I cleared my cookies. Thanks.
