    I'm on Windows Vista SP1 boxes (an Asus Notebook and a Dell Dimension
    laptop) and I have installed every Vista update provided by MSFT. I get
    advanced notice (which anyone can) of the updates and install them promptly.
    I did not install a scintilla of new software in over a month or a software
    update that would interfere in the equation.

    Immediately after installing all of the August updates MSFT provided, I
    noticed that at the many sites I have to supply a user name and password to
    sign in, I had to supply the user name and password as if I'd never signed

    This required a bit of searching for some, because there are too many to
    remember, and the requirements for passwords are varied.

    This happened immediately upon installing the August 2008 updates that I
    installed a couple days ago.

    I'm posting to ask if anyone else noticed this after installing them?

    Many thanks.

    Almost sounds like you had some corruption. Windows would then set IE back to
