Is the problem that it's figured out it's IE?

Does the error message give any details at all?

What version of IE and Windows?

I've seen this before and could only resolve it by upgrading to IE9. If your gonna upgrade to IE9, please download chrome or firefox at the same time. Chrome IMO is the fastest and best browser available and installs in about 30 seconds unlike IE9 which will need the sole use of your pc for about 30 minutes.

Does Chrome have a way of encrypting your saved passwords yet, in the same way as Firefox does with its 'Master Password'?

They are encrypted.

So if I jump on your computer, I can't see your passwords?

I don't use Chrome and I don't save passwords so nope.

If you gain access to someone's computer you can do most anything...

The passwords aren't stored in plain text though.

If someone jump on your computer and you've entered the master password in FF can they see your passwords?

No.  They need to enter the master password again.  They could however log into sites that I have stored the username/password combo IF I have let them access my computer whilst I'm logged into Firefox with my master password (which I wouldn't).

There are times I want to allow people to use my browser, maybe to show them something, etc., but I would prefer it if they aren't able to quickly access my passwords for all the sites I use (without me even knowing they've done this).  If someone wanted to 'hack' in and get my passwords, yes they can do that if they have the resources available. I'm more worried about someone I know who has access to my PC if I pop away from my desk (and I don't lock Windows for whatever reason) could access sites I use using my credentials.  That's why i don't store any passwords for websites in Chrome, but I'm happy to in Firefox.

No is the simple answer.

I'd never thought of this as there is really only me that uses my desktop computer and I don't know anyone that would have such knowledge to get at my passwords should they use the computer. However, I read up on your comments Dan, and JESUS. I downloaded a piece of software (that I shall not name) that reads Chrome's SQLite DB and extracted all of my saved passwords. All 58 of them.

On my desktop machines where I do 98% of my work, I'm not so worried, on my laptop though, I'll be reviewing my Chrome favouritism!

Thanks,

Paul.

WinKey + L. Lock your computer...

It can only extract them because you're logged into your account.
