    Thanks Marc,

    2. You are not asked if the password should be saved on some sites, but autocomplete works anyway

    I wonder if the information was already stored for these sites from previous visits using IE 9 and it started
    filling in the fields after your reset IE.
    You might be interested in IE Passview: IE PassView - Password Manager Program for Internet Explorer, although this app needs the website in IE history to decrypt the password (I clear history on exit and I don't store PWs - so I can't help test). Nirsoft does give a good description of saved passwords stored in the registry.

    You might be able to identify a site that fits the criteria (visited using IE 9, but not yet with IE10) use IE Passviewto see if the password exists and then visit using IE 10 to check the behavior.
    Have you restarted your machine since the IE reset? The only other thing I can think of is to clear all cached items from IE. This means that you'd have to answer the "Save PW" prompt and re-enter login information when you visit sites the 1st time.

    I recall there being a number of install issues when MS 1st made it available (corequsite MS platform packages??). Were you one of the early adopters?

    Anyway, a search for this issue shows that there is an issue with IE 10 in regards to autocomplete. The question is how much time do you want to invest in this? I don't want to clog up your thread, so I'll leave it at the partial resolution you found.

    You resolved 80-90% of the issue by Restting IE defaults.

    only the username ...

    also, I noticed a statement on that Nirsoft site that says that some sites can to disable one's autocomplete feature when logging in. This is news to me, but very interesting.

    I think I'm done. Over the years and with each little ridiculous glitch that surfaces (and the 'creative' resolutions offered, someone even suggested creating a new profile - can you believe it?!?), I find my time in this browser decrease, and increase in others. I have already gone past the halfway mark.

    Ok fair enough...

    I can believe it, I think I offered that as a way to test if the user profile was affecting the autocomplete.

    Over time I gain and lose confidence in different browsers. I swore off IE and favored FF, but then FF began exhibiting odd behavior and too frequent security updates. So for now my drug of choice is IE.

    I too don't let the minor glitches 'bug' me too much - it's a complicated system and having been on the developing side, it was often difficult to find and fix issues on a comlicated system.

    Bill, we sail similar waters and am in total agreement about complexity issues. I have been driving these machines since the late '70's and have seen some of the weirdest fixes and work-arounds. For example, back in the old days when all else failed we discovered re-seating circuit boards a surprising cure. Nowadays, I have solved many a weird and odd behavior with the simple act of power off-power on.

    -Marc.
