Windows 7: Wireless password not being remebered correctly upon restart

Wireless password not being remebered correctly upon restart

As the title states, each time I reboot my PC it will not automatically connect to my router unless I manually input the password. When I goto the connection propeties and view the password that`s saved it`s only saved the numeric portion of the wireless password. For example, if my wireless password is love123 upon reboot it only states 123 in the wireless connection properties.

I tried going into the wireless and network sharing screen then manage wireless connections and completely removing and reentering the wireless connection/password but the same issue persists.

Update your system specs so we know what kind of computer and what hardware you own.

That is not standard behavior. Have you run a virus check lately?
