When I log on to the forum,and I have to enter my member name (Ron 78) there is a whole list of names,probably 15-20,and I have to scroll down through them to get to mine and click on it,then enter my SECRET PASSWORD .Is there any reason that all those other names are on my list ? the list seems to be getting longer all the time.just wondering,can I erase those other names somehow or just leave them alone?

I have absolutely no clue what you are talking about.
Do you know how to take a screen shot? When you are looking at the page you are talking about, press the "PrtScn" or "Print Screen" button on your key board. Then, go into an image application, like "Paint" and Paste it there. Then save the file. Then email me the file. AdamW@C3VR.com

I've seen the same thing, Ron. I found it was names I had typed in trying to remember the exact name I had used to join the forum, a few years ago! The 'puter saves all of these names, and, as soon as you enter the first letter, it brings down a list of names to choose from. I finally got it down to just two names, now.
If you click on the "save this login"( or whatever it says there), it will save that one name, and your p/word, so you don't have to enter it every time. It will, however, lose it's "memory" if you turn the 'puter off, or reboot. I leave mine on all the time, now, so I don't have the problem with that.
It sounds like maybe someone else has tried to get on the site(on your 'puter), and just kept trying different names to get in.(or you, like me, have a hard time keeping up with all the diff. screen-names & p/words we use for diff. sites!) Just an idea.

Yes, this could well be Windows automatic login
function in operation. Later versions of Windows
ask you each time you enter a logon and password
for something if you want Windows to save it for you
and automatically enter it for you next time you are
asked for the same information. If you click "yes" then
it will accumulate a wee database of logins and passwords
for you just like this.
I get the same thing, but not from different attempts at logging in. If I get a PM, that name is then added to the list. A strange one showed up too, anybody know who Homey the Clown is? This also happens to me on other sites that require a name to log in though, I'm thinking it's the 'pute.
Yah,I think that is what has happened,maybe from em or pming other members,over times,and the names have just been added to the list,question is how do I get rid of them,I've got 15 names on my list ? yes we have windows xpRon 7838655.3106365741
Maybe this will help with the xp, click on the "tools" at top of screen, then "internet options", then "delete files" next delete cookies and clear history. then click O.K.
Just make sure you know your names and passwords for each site.this should clean out all those names, Might make the puter run a little faster.
If this is the first time clicking on delete files, it might take a minute or two for it to complete. "delete files" sounds like I'm telling you to wipe out your computer, but its not that. I think its just the history of where you've been and the stuff web sites load into your computer.Maybe someone who knows computer basics will be able to explain better than I.
My problem was that I couldn't get the site to even come up let alone log in,my password was automatic never had to log in or out,would go to my address book click C3VR, MSN would kick back a message " C3VR did not respond" started last monday, what I finalley did was entered the site address and it came up and had to rentered my user and pass word, deleted the old address, works OK now, but still having trouble getting back in through the forum post replies address, does the same thing," C3VR did not respond", I'am on Web TV, things might be a little different for me, whatever I do on my keypad goes to a "brain" somewhere and then to the site, regardless, the C3VR server hicuped.
