I got a new PC and IE doesn't remember entries on Web pages.  For instance, using IE on my old PC:
  1) I typed my name once in a web page
  2) When I come back to this page, it would have a pull down list with my name in it.
New PC doesn't have a pull down list.

Hello schmir1,

Adding to what cybersean said, make sure to check "Forms", and "Usernames and passwords on forms". Click OK to apply and close.

Hope this helps!
