For some reason that I have not figured out yet, every now and again I get onto my computer to access my favorite sites only to find that I'm no longer signed on. It doesn't happen every day, but every once in a while.
This weekend we were away for several days. The computer was turned off when we left, we had no power outages, not even a "blink" (the kind that make you go and change all the digital clocks in the house since they're now all blinking 12:00). But here I am again, logging back into all the sites all over again. This is the second time this has happened in the past few months.

Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this?

Are you running CCleaner? That will wipe off any cookies for website sign ins if you haven't moved them to "ignore" in CCleaner.

Draclvr,

No, I haven't run CCleaner recently.

I was signed out of this site today. Have it on the "leave this cookie alone" list for ccleaner, but haven't used ccleaner. Am using firefox. Go figure.

I was signed out of GameBoomers today also, and it's happened numerous times in the last few weeks. I am also using Firefox, and I don't do cookies in CCleaner. This recent rash of not being automatically logged in never used to happen. This is probably the first time since I got this computer 3 years ago.

I don't know what else to say. We have been following this thread. We are not ignoring the problem.

The program was upgraded to a new version a year ago. So there were months of no problem.
The changes that were done that directly relates to this is automatic cookie clearing once a month. This causes logging out. It was implemented because of security.

If not the UBB program, we can look at the ones that are frequently updated in our computer; like browser and Windows.

Thank you, MaG for keeping abreast of our posts, as always praise

But as long as I can always log myself back in I don't consider this to be a massive problem.
Really it's just a minor inconvenience laugh

And why does it only affect some computers? I've been coming and out for almost a week now in both IE and Firefox and have only had to sign in once out of dozens and dozens of times.

Mysterious...

That would be the 6 million dollar question - What bothers me is that after I sign in and then open a topic to respond to, my status is displayed as signed out and I'm unable to reply. It's an endless loop at that point.

The same thing is happening to me to, again InlandAZ. This has been happening for 2 or 3 weeks now.
Iv'e been a member for 11 years and this hasn't happened before.
I was always logged in.

The only thing I noticed was the "check" in the box to "remember me" sometimes disappears and that seems to be what logs me out.

I have the same problem too. I'd love to know what's happening?

It has to be a microsoft or browser update we did because I am having the same problem. It happens at least twice a week on all my websites for the last few weeks. I was thinking it was me, and keep running malware and other cleaners to see if I had a virus. It's definitely not a GameBoomers issue as it's all my websites I get signed out of.
