Why do I have to login every time I come to EE?

Before the other day, when I received an e-mail that a comment was posted to my question or to a question I was monitoring, I just click on the link and it opened EE and I was logged in. It's been that way for years.

Now the last 2-3 days, I have to login each time.

Now, I notice it is not just EE it's another site too and EE and this other site both have "remember" me choices. But, I'm not being remembered.
I do delete temp. internet files every day but not cookies or passwords, etc.

Pending responses, I'll run Malwarebytes and Adaware and check again.

I can tell you that this only happns if I cut my system off. If I leave EE now, for example, and come back in a few hors via another link in an e-mail, I'll still be logged in.
If I shut my commputer down for the day and bootup tomorrow and try to come back here from a new e-mail with EE link, I have to login again.

Thanks.

If you are using Internet Explorer, try doing an IE Reset along with your malware scan. IE, Tools, Internet Options, Advanced and click on Reset. This clears forms, cookies, and logins and takes IE back to out of the box condition. That may help.

I also set my AntiVirus to excluded tracking cookies for E-E.

That did it.
So, how did the settings get changed?
Recent Windows updates that come regularly?

I am not certain how the settings get changed. I know Windows update affect other things (lke Foxit) but I don't know all the things the update affect.

I am glad it is working for you.

Sadly, yes. As I noted in my first post, stuff goes away when you reset IE. However, when a reset is called for and/or necessary, there is no other way to do the job of the reset and keep the forms and all that you want. It is just like starting up IE on a new computer.
