Windows 7: Internet Explorer 10 - Install or Uninstall in Windows 7

Getting closer to the answer. I disabled the overnight Norton scan and my IE10 username/password info was intact this morning.

After posting at the Norton forum to see if anyone's seeing similar issues with their Norton utilities, a member posted suggesting that I disable my Norton "remove tracking cookies" option when I run the next unattended scan.

I'm still not sure what component of the Norton scan is removing the IE10 password history but process of elimination over the next few scans should nail it down.

Thanks. I like IE10's speed on my PC and will revert back to IE9 only as a last resort.

The Norton forum member mentioned that they have been getting reports regarding Norton & IE10 glitches. That's when he mentioned the tracking cookie suggestion.

I guess it always takes some time to iron out some things with browser upgrades, etc, and the 3rd-party AV's.

I know I could have gone the easy route, uninstalling IE10, back to IE9, but I guess the "tech" part in me is curious about what is causing the issue. I'm certainly no "tech" when it comes to Windows stuff. I was in another field for years and habits are hard to break

If you are willing to work with IE10 (as I am)...
...then you might want to read this tutorial about enabling "64bit tabs" as I call it:

Thanks for the info . I checked the links and have a question about enabling 64-bit mode in IE10.

I'm currently running 32-bit mode since my "enabled enhanced protected mode" option is unchecked in the Internet Options/Advanced Tab/Security section.

Will my IE10 64-bit version work as the 32-bit version? In other words, would I experience incompatibility issues that I don't currently see with the 32-bit mode?

I read this part in your link and that's why I was wondering about it.

"The IE10 browser frame process runs 64-bit, but for compatibility with plug-ins, IE10 runs 32-bit tabs by default. If the user turns on Enhanced Protected Mode, they will have 64-bit tabs by default for IE10."

I read this in a link provided in Brink's post in the "IE10 Provides Safer Browsing" thread:

"After you enable Enhanced Protected Mode, incompatible add-ons will automatically be disabled. If you encounter a site that needs an add-on such as Flash in order to work, you can disable Enhanced Protected Mode just for that particular Web site. "

That's good to know, if I switch to 64-bit mode. I can then disable it for a specific 'net page if needed.

IE10 (with 64bit tabs enabled) will try and launch a 32bit tab when needed. There may be times when it does not get that right. I've not had many problems, but I also moved to SumatraPDF because of IE10/64bit tabs.

Thanks for the info. I think I recall my nephew mentioning Sumatra as well. Sounds interesting to check out.

Brink,

It looks like the Norton "cookie cleaner" was the culprit with my IE10 username/password issue. My unattended scan ran last night with the cookie-removal option disabled and all of my 'net username/password info was intact this morning in IE10.

I'm going to keep an eye on it for a couple more nights but I think that one's history.

I've been able to run Nitro PDF Reader3 with IE10 (with 64bit tabs enabled - Enhanced Protection Mode).

Your mileage may vary (YMMV).

I should add that part of my move away from Adobe was fueled by recent changes to their reader.

Does Nitro PDF Reader have the ability to print current view? I miss that feature at times.
