Password Manager used to offer to remember login info

2008-04-07, 22:18 PM
Password Manager has quit offering to remember login info for newly visited websites (& probably everything else, though websites is the only thing I've tried to do so far).  However, it still logs me in to the sites I set up with it when it was fully functional.
 
Is uninstall then reinstall of the CSS software the solution?  (Any precautions to doing this if it's the answer?)  
 
 
 
(Using a one month old T61 with TPM chip, Seagate fde drive, Vista ultimate, having done nothing exotic except reduce the size of the C partition.)

At this point I can state that uninstalling then reinstalling the CSS software is NOT the answer. 
 
Next I am going to try enrolling my fingerprint for the first time and see if starting up that part of the software jogs the other part of Password Manager back into fully functional action.  (To this point I have been reluctant to invoke this additional part of CSS which already isn't functional in the one respect I mentioned earlier. But without an answer from Lenovo or anybody else yet, I'm willing to experiment. -  I imagine wiping the drive and reinstalling the OS and everything else ought to do the trick, but gee whiz, I've only had the thing three months and am barely acquainted with it at this point.  I'm trying to avoid drastic measures if possible.)

Starting up the Fingerprint software doesn't jog Password Manager back into action.
 
But here's an interesting bit:
 
On Lenovo's current page of Thinkvantage downloads, namely: 
under Client Security Solution is a link to something called "Redbook"
 
On p. 484  Redbook has helpful directions such as:

Creating new entries

To enter password information into the Password Manager, complete the following procedure:

1. Open the application or Web site logon window.

2. Right-click the Password Manager icon in the Windows icon tray and select

Create

. You can also access the Password Manager Create function by

pressing Ctrl+Shift+H.

3. Enter the information in the Password Manager - Create New Entry field

etc etc etc

But here's the punch line:  Password Manager on my T61 machine delivered early 2008 has Password Manager 2 on it (=version 2.1.0)

The Redbook on the current Lenovo page offers directions for Password Manager 1.3, this 4th edition of Redbook having been created Jan. 2005.   I guess that's why following the direction to right click the tray icon produces a menu that doesn't include the option "Create"  etc etc etc.

Are we rolling in the aisles yet?   LOL !!!

Man the lifeboats !
