You MIGHT have to enable password saving and all that although that is usually enabled by default.......I imagine you are using IE8 if you have a Win 7 system.

Saving passwords on your computer is never a good plan.......hackers LIVE for those.......

web sites, Yahoo included have a check box asking them to "remember this computer" or other such notation. This will be good for a period of time, sometimes and indefinite period.

Until you delete you temporary internet files (as in disk cleanup) or use certain programs which may delete cookies, you should be ok.

Anyone that is in the know when it comes to computer security disables all of the "remember this and that" options. It is the world we live in... If you have a hard time remembering passwords: Buy a USB key (thumb drive, removable memory), a small sized one will do. Create a document using note or word pad with your info in it and then save it to the key. Then when you need a password you can just copy and paste the info into the correct blanks. Also, the USB key method is a must when entering info into a public computer at a hotel or coffe shop or even your local library because key loggers can't deal with cut and paste.

If anyone reads my remark wrong, I do NOT let Windows or any other program on my computers store any passwords. I do let several secure web sites recognize my computer, but I still enter a password.
