    For some reason, my OE6 won't retain my password, even though I have
    Remember Password checked. Help!
    Thanks

    Be careful. I had the same problem and kept on retyping my passwords in
    utter frustration - I could not understand why they weren't retained.....
    Next thing, all my passwords on every account had been changed. Do beware,
    in my case it was a key logger who accessed far too much of my private
    information remotely. I installed a new hard drive and the problem went
    away.

    Was I wrong to assume I had a keylogger remotely installed on my machine?
    All my hotmail passwords were changed, as were the 'secret question'
    answers. The only clue I had to this was that the passwords had to be
    retyped each time via OE - even then I could not gain access to my accounts.
    Even my main email address had its password changed and I can think of no
    other way this could have happened.
    As I am the only person with access to my machine, a new hard drive to clean
    the computer was the only think I could think of.
    Please explain, I apparently know too little about computers and need to
    learn.

    Thankyou, Lisa

    Duh! Thanks for the explanation Brian. Of course, genetics leading to blonde
    hair is the cause of my stupidity. The sad thing was, I really did have a
    feeling of triumph when I replaced the drive and the keylogger was no longer
    there.
    Another confession is that I thought I would be really clever and partition
    the drives so I could still have access to the programmes/data from the
    keylogged old drive. This I did with cardboard..... my teenaged son nearly
    wet himself when he saw Mum proudly showed off her handiwork!

    What you have done (install new hard drive) was completely
    unnecessary. It appears obvious you may NOT have had anti virus,
    firewall or anti spyware software installed on your machine.

    To install a RAT means they (hackers?) have accessed your system,
    without your knowledge, as you failed to install (and keep up to date)
    software to keep them out.

    Installing a new hard disk was a complete waste of time, money and
    effort. Try practicing a bit of safe *hex* and install basic
    protection on your machine. A Google search on the subject should
    enlighten you ;o)

    No, what I found funny was that you changed your hard drive and seem
    surprised that the problem disappeared.

    My ISP told me that if I don't type in my password at the startup
    window, my OE will not remember the password even though it's checked. I
    have found this to be true. I have OE 6 and XP Home.
