Auto Logon to Forums

I've done a search on this issue but can only find reference to auto logon to users at startup. My problem is the auto login for Forums is not always working. This Forum is OK but one of the others I use regularly requires that I enter my u/n every time. Windows does remeber the password OK. Any help or suggestions most welcome,
Thanks

Use a password manager and form filler like Roboform.

Clear your cache, clear temp files, use ccleaner (this one is important), delete cookies. If it still does not work, manually remove the cookies for the sites. Make sure you also clear the hidden ones.
Cookie Location \Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Cookies\Low
YOu must go to control panel files and set up to show hidden files and show protected files, first.

I had the same problem with a forum, it is corrupted cookies.




Wish you luck
