Windows 7: Getting automatically logged onto mail accounts

04 Apr 2012   #1

Windows 7 64 bit
Getting automatically logged onto mail accounts

Hi, I'm running Windows 7 with IE8 on a new machine. I logged onto my hotmail account and now everytime I open the page it logs me straight in. I do not have any autocomplete ticked or 'remember me' on the hotmail page. To ensure it wasn't a problem with hotmail I tried it on Yahoo Mail and the same thing. I changed my hotmail password and now when I open up the hotmail page it keeps trying with the old password constantly. The PC is shared in the house which is causing us problems.

An IE reset should erase the password memory: Tools/Internet Options/Advanced/Reset. (You may have to include "personal settings" to delete everything.) After that it should not remember unless you tell it to.

Hi, I have just found the issue. The new PC is a HP box which has a HP tool called HP Simplepass which captures all your logon ID's and passwords. Just deleted all entries and disabled. Happy Days !!!
