[face=Arial][/face] I am running XP Pro, SP3 and have upgraded my browser to I.E. 8. The browser doesn't store (remember) internet site passwords. It offers to, but just doesn't. I understand that the problem might be in more with XP than I.E. 8 Any suggestions?

Ray, why has no one answered this question? I see that 30 something people have looked at it but not one had even a passing comment. Odd. Am I doing something wrong?

Internet explorer is usually the first bit of the Windows installation to become corrupt.
Upgrading is never a good idea.

Try reverting to your previous version by uninstalling IE8 - Uninstall the previous version from the Windows Components in add/remove window. Then install IE8.

If this doesn't work, download Google Chrome and blow Microsoft

   I did not answer your question because I do not know the answer to it.  I would think it has something to do with the registry, but that part is heavily encrypted and I do not know much about it.  Maybe it is a problem with IE's encrypting or maybe it is the registry not saving it.
   Concerning IE and Chrome.  I use them both.  Sometimes IE works better, sometimes Chrome works better.  Sometimes I have problems with IE, sometimes I have problems with Chrome.  They seem about even to me.

Thanks for the input. I have installed Chrome. It' a pretty good browser but a bit slow it seems. My wife uses Firefox and I just wanted a different browser for myself.
