    I have Yahoo as my home page. And I'm having a problem. You know when you log in you have to type in your yahoo id and password and you check the box to remember your id and password. Well, it doesn't remember!!! Maybe every 3 or 4 times i have to type everything in again and it's annoying to me!! LOL Is there a way around this? What am I missing here? In the past i would go for months without having to type it in so what gives?? Windows XP and Internet Explorer 7.

    Have you installed a maintenance program like system mechanic or norton? If you have them scheduled they will clear cookies out every time they do the health care on your computer unless you uncheck that option.

    Yahoo recently upgraded their site security. The maximum you can keep a cookie is now 24 hours. You'll have to check in your options somewhere how to set the session cookie time.
