    Are your security settings doing an auto delete on cookies/history/PWs?

    Can you go to other sites with your PW saved?

    Some kinda box you need to check or uncheck.

    Go to Control Panel and Internet Options and make sure things are set where you want them. I should say set to where this site works for you.

    Has anyone been fiddle farting around with your computer/settings lately? Downloaded any new software?

    Sometimes they will set-up things to work like they want or something they use at work, which does not work for your purposes.

    Or get cheap and download some free anti-virus/or other program which can jack up your computer.......................

    If it's an older computer that is using vista, Microsoft is making it operate wonky to get you to upgrade to a newer operating system. I'm experiencing this on one of the computers in my office.

    I did the Windows 10 upgrade, computer seems faster now, I like how it is set up but it did kill my printer because it was not compatable. I bought a new one and all is good now.

    I get the same from time to time and it turns out that the remember me box was not checked and I took too long typing my post. Truetone is probably right.

    Though the forum is just wonky and it happens anyway.

    Type you post on a note pad or such and copy and paste it here and you will be so quick the forum won't cut you off.

    Have you tried buying a new gun?

    It's the remember me checkbox thingi that several mentioned or was mentioned several times. I have had problems if my computer crashed without proper log off. Then I have to re-enter the user-pw. Then if I try to post something, it will give me that message, you are not logged in properly or whatever. Sometimes I have to re enter my user-pw a couple times before it takes it. Pisses me off big time.

    Windows 10 is only free for the first year.

    No.


    Upgrade within the first year, you get Windows 10 for free, permanently.
    You don’t have to pay anything.
    After the first year, your Windows 10 installation will continue working and receiving updates as normal.
    You won’t have to pay for some sort of Windows 10 subscription or fee to continue using it.

    A blog post by Terry Myerson, Microsoft’s Executive Vice President of Operating Systems.

    In it he states:
    “We announced that a free upgrade for Windows 10 will be made available to customers running Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows Phone 8.1 who upgrade in the first year after launch. This is more than a one-time upgrade: once a Windows device is upgraded to Windows 10, we will continue to keep it current for the supported lifetime of the device – at no cost.”

    Thanks, we have been putting it off on this Laptop. Keep getting reminders............maybe soon.

    Will it erase all saved PWs and the like? Stored data like shipping addresses on Amazon?

    Big Chief, I take it you have Window 7, nothing really wrong with that.

    I have not took the plunge yet on my laptops, all Window 7, though some on the forum have.

    Your user files, program files etc, will be kept during the OS update.

    Some software and hardware may not be compatible.( Windows Office can be a ****)

    However, it is always best to make a backup of your data before upgrading.
