I can not get usernames and passwords to save in internet explorer 8 on Windows 7.  I have the autocomplete settings checked, but no luck.  Does anybody have an idea of how to make it work?

Perhaps IE needs to be repaired. In Tools -> Internet Options -> Advanced, do a Reset. This does reset all options, but it may fix the above issue. ... Thinkpads_User

Try the following:

(a) See if safe mode works. Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator. Then type iexplore -extoff. This opens IE in safe mode. It may be an add-in causing the issue and safe mode stops add-ins from loading. Does this work.


(b) Also in an administrative command prompt, run SFC /SCANNOW .  This corrects protected files. Does this help?

Also scan for viruses as malware can cause issues.

Thank You thinkpads.  I came across a free program called RoboForm.  It is probably not the best answer for my problem, but it was the easiest.  It created a toolbar that stores the logins.  Thanks again.
