Automatic Log IN

Postby Dan England » Sat Jan 28, 2006 9:42 am

During the past couple of weeks, I have had to log in often. I always check the box to do this automatically but it tends to log me "out" automatically rather than "in". How do I correct this problem? Thanks, Dan

Dan that happens to me about once a month also and then after I log on again, (sometimes twice) it works fine again for a month or 2. I just figure it must be a glitch on the board or maybe maintainance wipes out our current Cookie.

Dan:

I have had that occur to me as well a number of times... I am beginning to think it is not a forum problem but an individual puter problem - most likely corrup cookies..

This occurs after time..

Also, depending on what System Suite you have for Anti-Virus, Spy-ware, Mal-ware, Ad-ware and stuff, these could be a source of the log in problems. Many of these add in programs will auto-quarantine or auto-delete even low level tracking cookies such as from FarmallCub.com, whilst removing even more hazardous items at the same time.

Depending on which ones you have, you may be able to set them to leave specific cookies alone.. or, you may just end up doing what I do.. just log back in again... easier..

:roll: :D

Hope that helps.

I occasioanlly have to log in, but not very often. Don't log off when done, just go to another site or shut down computer. another thing is to check your cookie setting to make sure it is accepting cookes form farmallcub.com.

I'm the furthest thing from a computer geek but I think I've solved my log on problem and maybe this will help others. Recently while troubleshooting something else I lowered my security setting in the control panel internet options to medium. I haven't had a problem since :D . Before everytime tried to log on I had to check the little box for keeping me logged on and sometimes that wouldn't work. It was frustrating.

Jim:

Glad the info helped some.

I used to be a Norton proponent, in fact no computer left my bench without 2 extremely important tools --

1. APC Surge Arrest -- Mandatory
2. Norton System Works -- Mandatory..

Now since Norton has gotten so big, and soooo useless... I now use IOLO exclusively. Make sure you have a GOOD Suite on your computer. I recommend IOLO System Mechanic Pro -- 5 is excellent, and I am test running 6 on Em's puter... jury is out on that one, but SM5Pro is very good. I do not have much faith in others, have used em all, and out the door pretty much.

Anyways, make sure you also have a good Firewall.. IOLO comes with that..

Bill:

Recently while troubleshooting something else I lowered my security setting in the control panel internet options to medium.


By lowering your security setting to medium you are actually allowing the backdoors which are rampant in any version of Windows to be accessible by hackers. If you are going to run at the DEFAULT, which is Medium, ensure that you have Microsoft Anti-spyware Beta, Ad-Aware Personal SE and Spy-Bot all installed and run them regularily. I recommend a minimum of once a week. Depending on how often you are on the net, you may have to up to 2 or 3 x's/week. Em had to just to get rid of the bots...

I recommend that these additional Shareware (Free) programs are utilized by all.. as they do work. No, each as a stand alone are NOT SUFFICIENT, but when all 3 are used in concert with a suite such as SM5Pro, then the integrity of your computer is greatly enhanced.

Personally, I always adjust my Security options to Custom and it becomes as high as I can get for most sites.. Sites such as http://www.farmallcub.com and my server obviously are TRUSTED sites, so I do allow my setting for those sites and those sites only to be relaxed a bit to default.. Most others are at Max...

I just get tired of redoing systems.. and when you do as many as I do in a normal year, it can get a little intimidating especially when you have to redo a particular system 2 or 3 or 4 times a year....

Oh one other little tidbit..

You can usually buy a program which has been upgraded such as System Mechanic 5 Pro for about 50% off and as much as 75% off which is significant. It doesn't actually compromise your computer when loaded, as one of the first things it does is hit the server for ALL the updates. Will it update to SM6Pro -- no, the interface will not, but all of the important stuff will.

So a good way to keep your computer protected yet save some hard to come by cash for really important stuff like Cub Parts is to buy a program that is no longer at top prices and allow it to upgrade on the net..

I like that option a lot. :lol: :lol: Keeps the FRUGAL side of me happy :D :!:

Hi Rudi

Rather than a suge protector I perfer a power back up. I am using a 650 apc. It will condition the line voltage boost low line voltage in brown out conditions and give me time to shut down the computer if the power goes out. As well as provide surge protection.

And when the power goes out it starts beeping I know the power is out so I can shut down the fireplace so it does not overheat without the fans running.

I have a lamp pluged into it too so I have one light when the power is out.

Billy:

For those who can justify the expense, it is well worth the money. And if you live in an area prone to brown outs, it is a must. However, we mostly have bumps or outages, so the surge is sufficient.

I want Backup some day, but it is gonna be expensive, as computers are in 6 locations on 3 floors in my house and that does not account for the laptops....

But, definitely an excellent suggestion/choice..

:D

If you've recently installed or activated a "privacy protection" program that messes with your cookies, then you probably won't be logged in automatically.

Cookies also can have an expiry date, after which they need to be refreshed.
