    You could try de-selecting the options, rebooting, then selecting them again - this may kick start IE into doing what it's told.

    thanks Leif.
    I'm running XP Pro.
    Tried deselecting, rebooting & reselecting. No diff. Still doesn't even ask if I want the password saved. Very frustrating.

    You can try the fix at line 13 of Troubleshooting Windows XP, Tweaks and Fixes for Windows XP. Note: this may be for IE6 only. As a last resort, see IEBlog : Reset Internet Explorer Settings.

    Thanks Joe.
    I was a bit wary of running the vb script solution, so I tried the big reset. That removes all add ons and brings IE back to original set up, but it made no diff. So then I tried the vb script. That made no diff! There is still no prompt to remember the password. Very frustrating, cause if that won't fix it can anything?
    Regards,

    Try placing a shortcut to your logged in page on your desktop and see if that will bypass the need for the password. This usually only works for sites that use cookies, but it's simple to do and worth a try. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    Hve you tried to uninstall IE7 and re-install IE7? BTW, when you tried the changes you were running in an account with admin rights weren't you?

    Re: Remember passwords (IE 7.0.5730.11)

    I was running with admin rights.
    Sounds like the next logical step. But I have no idea how to uninstall & re-install IE7.
    Thanks Joe, really appreciate your help.

    You should be able to uninstall IE7 from Control Panel | Add/Remove programs. Look for Windows Internet Explorer 7.

    Thanks Joe.
    Duh! I looked under 'Internet Explorer 7' and it wasn't there. But yes it is under 'Windows Internet Explorer 7'. Duh again.
    Only catch - how do I re-install it?

    Through Microsoft Update, I guess - once you uninstall IE7, it should be offered automatically. Or see Internet Explorer: Get It Now.

    Yep looks like ' ... Get It Now' will work. I guess the Lounge will hear if it doesn't <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
    I think I'll have to get a 'Thanks Hans, again (again)' stamp made.
