Windows 7: I Never store passwords on my computer

I Never store passwords on my computer

The password confirm window in Windows 7 Pro will come up
the next time I go into a site that I previously clicked on the "Never for this site"
box. This happens over and over again.
How to turn the Password Manager OFFFFFF!
Thanks for your help.

What browser are you using?
Whichever one it is,go to the options menu and there should be an option there to turn it off or reset it.
It sounds like either an option was mis-clicked or the browser is corrupt in some way,so maybe a fresh download is in order

You'll notice that a lot of "login" based websites have a Keep me logged in checkbox which if checked, creates a cookie that stores your password info for that site. Facebook is an ar$e like that as it randomly checks the box and you have to manually un-check it (which I do).

There are browser settings which can prevent the saving of passwords...

Internet Explorer 8+(Tools, Internet Options)

Setting these options (check/un-check) will allow for you to configure IE to not save your username & password details.

Thank you very much for responding.
I am using K-Meleon for my browser.
I think I have fixed the problem.
Time will tell.
There was a box checked in "Preferences"
that saved passwords.
