That does not work consistently.
The software might be looking up different "log on status" data while performing different tasks.

Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms.

Just did it again after sending a PM.

The system forgets I am logged on and loses my search display.

Are you running any security S/W or browser add-ons or settings that might be upsetting cookies? Have you tried with another browser?

It happened with IE6 & 7 when I used them a couple of years ago.
I only use Firefox now.
I have been reporting this same fault for what seems like years.

Yes, I use security. I have no idea of how it operates.

Hmm, the fact that lots of users use Firefox with no issues suggests that the problem is at your end. Without knowing more about your system it's very hard to suggest solutions.

Andrew, it sounds like something is clearing your cookies as part of an automated regular cleanup.
Unless I manually delete cookies I never have to log in. Also I have my cookies (for all my favourite sites) saved as a file so that I can just import them again after doing a full cleanup. Certainly diyAudio doesn't seem to expire.
I think you need to look what is running on your PC.

I think I need to install windows 7. It's been lying on the shelf for 6months waiting till I get a spare PC working before I update this PC, currently running xp sp3 very slowly.

That sounds like a plan...

Clean install ? rather than an upgrade... you can't beat it. It makes a world of difference.

All cookies cleared!

* Return to the page you were previously viewing
* Go to forums index
I just logged out and that message appears (every time).
The problem is when I don't want to log out.
