Windows 7: Browsers don't store Cookies/Passwords etc.

Browsers don't store Cookies/Passwords etc.

Hey guys, new member here in need of some serious help! So, I ended up deleting my other account and creating a new one with the same name on my computer. Any browser I'm using, when I choose to save a password for the website, it doesn't save! If I choose "Remember me", it doesn't. I originally made a topic in the Chrome Help Forums as Google Chrome kept signing out. I thought it was an issue with Google Chrome. Now I realize it happen with all browsers. Why does this happen? It never used to do that before I deleted and made a new account. (I deleted the account and made one with the same name because I was having a problem but that didn't help fix the problem and I found the solution to it here. I really want this problem fixed, as it takes a while sometimes for me to sign in.

Scan with

- Malwarebytes Anti-Malware free
- ESET Online

It may also be Avast feature? Check it for brower related functions.

Never had problems like that before. Do you mean that Avast! may be blocking it?!

All avast seems to do is block harmful webpages. Hmmm... I will try turning the sheilds off temporarily and see if that works.

It "may" be Avast, yes. Worth a check.

Also, you didn't sound like you actually scanned your computer. It may very well be hijacked.

Please note that I am not an expert in security, the list I gave you is pretty much a standard list and you are better off scanning with them until a more knowledgeable person comments to save diagnostic time.

Nope! Avast! doesn't seem to be the cause of the problem! I'll do a virus scan and check!
