Can't keep password in IE dialer

By jrgoad ·
At my small ISP we are having trouble with some clients losing the password entry in the dialer. Username is maintained, but PW will NOT stay - even during configuration it is lost going from page to page.

This seems to be primarily with IE5.5, but could be with earlier versions.

A simple cure is to tell your clients to go the "Dial Up Network" folder and remove all files except for "Make New Connection." Then make a new connection and apply the info and checking the box to remember the password. IE 5.5 does have this bug.It does not appear to be repairable from the desktop but can be fixed here. They will then need to launch IE and mark your ISP as the default under connections.

This did not help - besides it was the first thing we checked out. No help.

An easier solution to this is to use the 'Windows Update' in the start menu. Had the same problem on a couple of systems and the update critical patches solved them nicely.

This might be the best solution; although the MS Knowledge Base response above provided some assistance for other things, it was of no value for this specific problem.
