Password prompts

By Frank K ·
I'm running IE5 on a windows 98 box on multiple ghosted machines. On one box during the login process it will not remember the username / password / domain even though the box is checked to save password. It remembers it on all the other machines. I've checked policy editor and everything looks correct. Any suggestions?

Had same problem, now Im bald, but heres the trick:

Remove everything out of network neighborhood, DO NOT reboot when done. Look for all *.PWL files and delete them. Reboot, set up the dial-up/network for the internet, then the buttons should work. somehow they got corrupt, I did what I said and it worked. Microsoft reference: http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q148/9/25.ASP

Hope this helps,
Eric

Check to make sure that the PC is not grabbing a profile from the network everytime it logs in. This would wipe the settings in IE5 out. It does it to us all the time when we clear out user.dat.

Sargeant has the answer - one thing to remember is that somehow if you have a blank password during windows logon, windows will often fail to remember other passwords you have entered. Kinda weird - an "undocumented feature" I guess.
