HAVING TO LOGIN MORE THAN ONCE
- if you use a shortcut (like your favorites or bookmarks) try removing the WWW in the address.

CAN'T LOGIN - HAVE TO LOGIN MORE THAN ONCE:
Most login or page loading problems can be fixed by clearing your cache, something you should do occasionally.
Browsers are designed to download web pages and store them locally on your computer's in an area called the "cache". Typically these items are stored in the Temporary Internet Files folder. When you visit a page for a second time, the browser speeds up display time by loading the page locally from cache instead of downloading everything again, which means you may not be looking at the most current version of a web site. When the cache fills up, performance can slow down and your hard drive may run out of space.
Below are is a link for instructions to clear your cache, just look for your browser and the version you are using.

ANOTHER ALTERNATIVE is to get the free program called CCleaner (crap cleaner) and let it do all the work for you. It literally cleans crap out of your computer. You should use it once a week/month depending on how much you use your computer.

Be aware that by deleting all of your cookies, you may need to go back to any sites that store login information and re-enable this functionality. IF YOU USE WILDBLUE.NET THERE ARE KNOWN ISSUES that cause problems with online forums and bulletin boards!

Seems there are quite a few people having to login in several times even though they have checked the "keep me logged in" box.
Your computer is not self sufficient and it accumulates tons of stuff, it saves info from every place you visit on the web. You occaisionally have to clean it out. The post above tells you how to do it!

Do NOT post your personal info - someone could use your login and password to sign in to your account.
