At odd times, there doesn't seem to be a pattern to it, but when I try to get into PCA I get the following... http://img6.imageshack.us/img6/4708/pcaoddity.jpg

Hi FE

"CCleaner will clear your cookie cache, and your browser history, so when you hit our site again you'll be prompted to login, and your browser will load a new version of the homepage."

Um I'm afraid this isn't the case, because I login in a different way. First off CCleaner doesn't get rid of all the cookies. I've set it up to keep certain ones and PCA is one such cookie that it doesn't delete. Second, I have set up a link to PCA on my Desktop, taking me directly to the 'Helproom Forum'. I don't have to sign in, because I never sign out.

FE - This is the Final UPDATE (Hopefully)

After having more problems with other sites this morning, I am now in the position to give my most sincere apologies to PCA for assuming that my problem was with them. I've changed my FF6 settings, in regard to Cookies and History etc. Cleaned everything out and am pleased to report that it now appears to be back on track. I have set it to forget everything (except 'Saved Passwords') the moment I switch it off.

"I don't have to sign in, because I never sign out."

That's because you've told CCleaner not to delete the cookie we set. Under normal circumstances, and by default, CCleaner would remove the cookie, and you would indeed have to login after ever CCleaner session.

Bear in mind that if you allow your browser to save passwords you're creating a small security vulnerability.

Thank you for the apology.

Hi FE

I am aware of this, but I don't allow the saving of 'Passwords' for any security sensitive sites. Ie: online banking, ebay, pay pal transactions.

Cheers
