Something weird is going on with your browser or PC Mike.

I leave both my PCs logged in to LSB permanently, and the only times I have ever been logged out since joining in Jan 2007 are as follows:

- When I deleted the Cookies saved by my browser

- When I upgraded from Internet Explorer to Firefox [8D]

Otherwise, both of my PCs stay logged in to LSB even when switched off.

You should never have to Log In again unless one of the events above occurs, or if something else affects your saved cookies.

Maybe you have an anti-spyware program that clears all the cookies periodically? Cookies are quite benign, and there is no need to delete them unless you want to remove all traces of your internet activities e.g. if you are selling the PC or Hard Drive to someone else.

Hopefully one of these ideas will point you in the right direction.

Cheers,
Grant.

You have to make sure the "remember me" spot has been ticked. Deleting cookies, however, unticks that box.

Hey Grant yep thats it, I use firefox and cookies are deleted whenever i log off the internet so that accounts for most of it and my browser does do odd things at times which is the reason why i binned explorer. I would have replied sooner but i had to log in again DOH!!! puter needs a clean up me thinks, brought it from UK so im on my third broadband provider and some of the old providers software is imposible to get rid of, so that every now and then the old pc trys to connect to my old provider when this one goes down which is once or twice a week so i have to reboot and reinstall the modem. which is bloody irritating,
Cheers for the input all the same.

Sounds like it's time for a reformat and reinstall of Windows Mike. Just make sure to back up all your data first ;)

So Grant... when AVG tells me and records that I have 134 warnings and I look into it and discover they are all cookies - why are they warning me? I do a cookie delete at least once a week and know I have to log in again. At least I now know what my login name is so not problem... and I don't log out either so just in case it shows I am here 24/7! I'm not! Honest!

This sort of warning is for the paranoid among us who don't want to leave any traces of their internet activity. Maybe they have something to hide or are just privacy fanatics, I don't know. It takes all sorts I suppose, but personally, I never delete the Cookies unless I am wiping the entire contents of a Hard Drive. Wait -- I just remembered one other reason I had to delete cookies a few months back:

- An internet provider's web site was remembering my Login and Password incorrectly, and the only way to cure it was to delete all my cookies. This has only happened once or twice in the past several years.

Another possibility is that the writers of AVG want to convince you of the worth of their program by having it do something "useful" :confused:

A good example of this is my sister who wondered why her computer was so slow. I asked her to show me the problems she was having, and it turned out she was running a full spyware scan every time before logging in to do internet banking. Of course it would come up with cookie warnings each time and then she would delete them.

My sister was convinced that something was wrong with her PC because it kept getting more cookies each day. I had to explain to her that most web sites do that as a way of recording the preferences of individual users, and that there is no harm done, as cookies are a simple text file [:I]

When I looked further, my sister had Norton Anti-virus as well as 2 other Spyware Scanners and AV programs running. As a result, her PC ran like a kayak through molasses so I uninstalled all the AV/Spyware scanners and she couldn't believe how much faster it was. Since that time, she has never had any further problems with speed.

Why do you do this? It isn't necessary!

I don't like AVG. I've been using Avira for around 10 years, and have no problems.
