    If you looked at the attached screen shot there is no place for it to save the password. I looked at the auto complete secions and ect to make sure that its set to save passwords so I am guessing that there is somewhere else where I have to change it. Any one have some ideas for me?

    There is a password manager of some sort in XP - trying to track down information for you - running 2K at work f&*k.

    /shakes will be back with answers

    I believe that some site can block the saving of passwords, such as what you're trying to do.

    My course site at my college comes to mind. It still had the option but didn't work. And since it's Cisco then it could very well be that way.

    User Accounts in Control Panel, Advanced tab, Manage Passwords button.

    If you log into a domain this is available. :) otherwise, there is a net use command within that Kelly's Corner link that may do it for you.

    Hmm I did not understand any thing from the kelly one that would work with me. I thought there was a button just to remember that password? Hmmm....

    You can try Roboform:

    http://www.roboform.com/

    I know it isn't in IE specifically, but I have a few clients who use it and love it. It is also easy to backup and transfer your saved credentials to another machine with roboform installed.

    I was referring to this, though re-reading it - might not apply here.

    You can in fact prohibit users from saving logon credentials. I do this with OWA.

    It's extremely annoying but good security.

    Log onto intranet portal
    Log onto intranet
    Authenticate to OWA

    Then I get to see my lovely OWA :yowch:

    I wonder, (somehow I seriously doubt) could you put the username / pass at the end of the access URL?

    ie http://yourmom .xxx ;shakes ;osnnrocks

    shakes, osnnrocks being userid / pass?

    I changed the :

    to ; to skip the emoticons....

    Hmm, not sure, but .xxx domains won't make it through the registration process :p

    I think a setting like that may depend on server-side configurations.

    For the passwords that you have saved, when you get a new pc, can you transfer them over??
