Question About IE Remembering Passwords?
Greetings MS,

I believe this question applies to all versions of IE currently supported.
(6-8) When you enter a user-name and password for the first time on a site,
but you do not get the prompt that says, "Do you want IE to Remember This
Password?" What would be reasons for this? Thanks in advance. I run IE 8.

Re: Question About IE Remembering Passwords?
Hi,
1. Many secure sites (banks, other financial sites, etc.) don't allow
password caching/AutoComplete.

2. Internet Options. Content> AutoComplete> Settings, is AutoComplete
enabled for passwords? Is "Ask me" checked?

3. Clearing all stored passwords may reset the troublesome sites and allow
the prompt to appear.

Useful for recovering stored passwords before you clear all stored login
data:
IE PassView- NirSoft:
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/interne..._password.html

You may be able to use IE Passview to delete data (even if there's not a
stored password) for only the affected sites.

Hope this helps,
Don
