Windows 7: IE 9 is Now Deleting Stored User Names On Exit

IE 9 is Now Deleting Stored User Names On Exit


My IE 9 has suddenly decided to delete my stored User Names. I'm guessing the change is due to a download update? Looking at Internet Options\Browsing History On Exit it seems that if you check delete Temporary Files, History and Cookies you now also delete saved user names and passwords. Is the only way to save User Names now to uncheck the Delete Browsing History On Exit and do it manually every time?

It might possibly be that. however i recommend going to your control panel, Network and Internet, Internet options.

Then next to where you have checked Delete Browsing History On Exit clicking Delete... and ensuring that Form data & Passwords are not checked.

If they aren't then I do recommend unchecking Delete browsing history on exit, and maintaining it manually from now on.

Hi Adam,

Thanks for reply. I had checked that and Form Data and Passwords are not checked.

So looks like a manual job every now and then unless someone has any other suggestions.

Is that what others are having to do anyone?
