Saving Cookies

Personally I delete all my cookies when I turn off my computer. However, against my advice, my neighbour wants to save his Bank log on details, to save him logging on each time he visits the Bank Web Site. This does not include him password. The Bank says that cookies need to be saved, however, everytime he reboots the cookies are gone. He doesn't have any third party software clearing cookies, and I have checked his Internet Explorer settings, but cannot see anything that would delete these cookies every time he closes his computer down. He is running XP Pro, any ideas?

Yep try internet sweeper. Has options for saving on that.

www.geocities.com/internet_sweeper

This version is fully functioning, with a nag screen (I have registered no nag one so can tell it is correct).

Works on all browsers, like opera, IE netscape mozilla.

Change your shut down options to not delete anything and try it, see if it is ok for you.

This is dl link directly, link is on main page also.

Sweeper seems inadequate for me, but, yes I wonder how I could save my cookies so that I can restore the next time I re-install the whole system (XP Pro)? I've tried to simply save the cookie folder, but after restoring them (same profile always), Windows didn't notice they were in the right place or simply couldn't use them for sites with user login (such as Osnn.net for example ;)
I'd greatly appreciate if someone here had the solution for this... and it would also benefit Capricorn, the original thread starter ;)

If you're using IE check out the file pulldown then Import/Export - this gives you options to save your favourites and/or your cookies. I think you will find this works - I use it if I want to share my cookies around the network ;)

Is it all cookies, or just the one he needs? I was thinking maybe his temp net files had hit the limit and thus wouldn't be saved untill he cleared them again. If thats not the case perhaps have a peek into his "Internet Options" and then "Advanced" tab and scroll down to security and see if "Empty Temorary Internet Files folder when broswer is closed" is check. If it is uncheck it and see if that helps. :)

Thanks for all the suggestions Guys. He still seems to lose these cookies after a re-boot, so he will just have to enter his details each time he visits his online Bank.

Finally sorted it. My neighbour had downloaded Fresh UI, and had not told me. In Fresh UI there is an option to 'cover your tracks' and delete cookies and browser addresses. He had selected these options. After removing the ticks from these options his cookies were no longer being deleted, and he is happy again.
