    I told my computer to remember my password to a web site and it did and is going to the wrong place. How do I remove the saved password. My local newspaper is online and when I selected it I told it to save my password and it will only bring one page up at a time instead of the whole newspaper like it did on my other computer. Help please. Jackie B.

    Access System Restore, pick a date prior to the time you gave the computer those instructions and see if that works. HMB

    If you told YOUR COMPUTER to save it, it's stored in your own computer and you are in no danger of it being co-opted. If you saved the newspaper address in your favorites just deleting that link in your favorites (or bookmarks) should also delete the saved password............I think.

    I may try the restore function as I went to tools and internet options then contents and selected delete for passwords and history and it didn't clear it. I failed to mention that I am on Windows 7. Jackie B.

    I did a system restore and it fixed it but I still don't understand why it limited it to just one page when the paper is 22 pages long. After restoring and going to the web site but not saving my password I can read the whole paper. Jackie B.

    I may be wrong, but is it possible you have a "cookie" from the newspaper web site that is allowing you to view without having to log back on?
