Windows 7: IE11 doesn't remember passwords

IE11 doesn't remember passwords


I inadvertently deleted some files and folders in my user directory when attempting to clean up some temp files. I think that I restored all the deleted files, but I had to reinstall my smart-ups software and replace all the application icons on the quick launch and in the start menu.

The only issue I have left to resolve at this point is IE11 remembering website passwords. When I login to a website such as the Seven Forums, when I click in the user name box, my user name will appear, but when I click in the password box, the password doesn't appear as it used to. Now I have to manually retype the password each time I login. I do get the pop-up bar at the bottom of the page that asks if I want IE11 to remember the password each time, but for some reason the remembered password isn't there the next time I attempt a login.

Is there a fix for this issue?
