Im having a problem with passwords and my computer. If I set my passwords for email,fasebook ect. I can log on, on my computer but cant on anyone elses computer. If I change my password on another computer I can log on ok with all others but not my own. If someone else logs on using my computer they dont have a problem. So why is it just my passwords, its not a caps lock problem.

Are you logging out when leaving one of those sites? Probably a good idea to get into that habit since you're using different computers.

Computers use cookies to remember our log in info. Different sites has different amounts of time that cookie is effective. If you are using Internet Explorer to remember your passwords on your own computer, you must follow the prompt that says something like "This is not the saved password for this site. Do you want to change it?" every time you change your password.

If you are using another computer, make sure you have logged someone else out and yourself in by typing in the correct password. You want to be sure to tell IE not to save that password, and when you are finished be sure to click the "log out" button, not simply close the page.

Please ask more questions if I didn't explain that very well.
