Hiya

Don't use Gator. The reason is, is that it is Spyware and can cause problems as well to your PC. If you've already installed this, go here and downlaod AddAware www.lavasoftusa.com
Install and run, ensuring that Deep Registry Scan is enabled. Remove all except any references to Web3000 or new.net

If you haven't downloaded it yet, then its best not to.

Oh my... lilaco it crashed your system?? It must have been that
spyware thats so difficult to get rid of... did you recovery & reformat? I know you're skepical but you really need ad aware... Spyware will not only use up all your resources calling home after invading your privacy online ...to tell them what to send you via e-mail etc... it also bogs the system down to the point you can't surf, at least it does for some. I'd be willing to bet there was more going on on your system than spyware that caused it to crash as well.... or the even the removal of spyware.

that was a great site.....never knew that gator was doing this. i like the program as it is convenient to use when i go on a site. is there any other program out there that stores your password and enters it into each site but does not do spyware???

Hiya

Not that I know of, but you could try this.

Tools | Internet Options. Content. AutoComplete.

In there, you can have Web Addresses, Forms, User names and passwords saved. You can also Prompt to save passwords.

I have mine unchecked, so that I am more secure, but you could check this and when it pops up after entering a password, you say Yes, and it'll save it.

Other than that, maybe someone else knows of one.

I'm using ROBO Form. It works great for me. It took me a little time to learn how to use it properly because I had been using Gator. It does not have any spyware and supports multible users.

Get it here.
