Windows 7: IE11 Saved Passwords gone after cookie/temp files cleanup

IE11 Saved Passwords gone after cookie/temp files cleanup

hi there,

why does IE11 remove all web passwords when you use CC cleaner and the option "saved passwords" is UNTICKED? it seems as though it's ignoring that, unless they are stored elsewhere and they get cleaned with temp files and company cleanup.

That setting seems to work for Chrome and Firefox, where passwords are kept.

any ideas?

thanks

Hi,
Norton after full scans has been reported to delete a lot of stuff like saved passwords.
