Can't Get Prompt to save Passwords in IE7.0
I've tried:

1. Content/Auto Complete/Settings/ and checked everything
2. Privacy/Advanced Settings to Override automatic cookiie handling and
"always allow session cookies"
3. Reading all these posts about how to get it to work AFTER saying NO to a
prompt

How do I get the prompt to work?

You might try the following:

1. Double-click inside the form field where you normally enter your
username.
2. This will bring up a dropdown list showing all your saved AutoComplete
user names.
3. Point only (do not click) to the one you want to remove, so that it is
highlighted
4. Hit the Delete key.
5. Once you've deleted the username from the list, login in again.
6. This time you should get the prompt back asking you if you want
Windows to remember your password.

Good luck,

Donald Anadell

Double clicking does nothing. My problem is not deleting old passwords, my
problem is getting a prompt to save any passwords.
