    In every instance where I elect to 'be remembered' by website or to save settings (like in a game), they are lost when leave that website and return. For example, I must sign in to the Lounge each time I visit... prior to installing Win 7, it was not necessary.


    I have tried adjusting all setting I know in IE and Firefox but nothing seems to help. I would appreciate any ideas or help.

    As it is happening in IE and Firefox, check your internet security software. Some have privacy options that will delete browsing related data such as cookies.

    This kind of sounds like you have the "Clear history when firefox closes" option checked. Go to tools > options > privacy > use custom settings

    Or he is running something like CCleaner to remove browser history and temp files. With these utilities, it is necessary to specify which cookies are to be kept, otherwise all are removed.

    It's Christmas Don. Cookies are always disappearing around Christmas.

    But seriously, this does sound like your browser is clearing itself when you log off.
