A lot of users have reported this issue. One of the culprits is CCleaner. If you don't have the latest version, please update it.

I don't use CCleaner at all, so this is not the fix.
Defender is disabled.

I don't know what else to try??

****, it did it again in my IE8. Every single username and password is "unknown" in IE8 now, in all the forums and sites I log into ... except my username in my homebank ?!?!?!

Is there still not a fix for this annoying thing? If Microsoft can make a complete Windows 7, why can't they fix this?

OK, that was a new solution +rep

Like Burgurne I also has this annoying problem. Maybe somebody will figure out where to make a change i reg.database to avoid IE8 to delete usernames and passwords on this timelimit.
