My browser Lost Saved Passwords


Hi All,

Well, My probelm is that i am using Windows 2000 Professinal. Today i was checking my PC's services in administrative Tools. I stopped some services that i felt unneccesary. After stopping some service that i dont know....My browser (Internet Explorer) lost all its saved password.Moreover it doesnt display the option to save passwords. I have to give user name and password to access some web portals everytime which i had saved in the previous setting.Plzzzzzzzzz help me out to get back to my browsers previous setting.....

Thnx,

Rabeea

Have you tried reenabling those services? That actually sounds like a good thing in IE. I dont know how to get them back but I suggest you try using Opera or Firefox. Two really nice browsers that are much more secure and customizable than IE.

well i don't have an idea to get those saved passwords back but see "prompt me to save password" option in the browser settings if it is unchecked then make it check btw don't try to play with services you don't know cause windows sucks
