Alright geeks, here's one for you. I'm putting this here since this really isn't hardware related. I also don't think it is Windows related. So I'm not sure where this should go.
Every once in a while when I go to the MPC home page, my auto log in will not be there. What I see is the login/register up in the corner instead of being logged in. Then when I put in the user name and password that I use, it still won't log me in.
I have saved the reset password email that I get every time I have to do the reset. I then input the self same user name and password it had before and now I can log in.
This has been going on for quite a while and seems to only affect the main page and not the forums. I do have to say that there was exactly one time in these many years that I can remember when the main page auto log in worked and the forum auto log in didn't.
Now when I say this has been going on for a while I mean around 4-5 years.
I've changed just about every aspect of my computer during these years. I can honestly say that over the 4-5 years everything has been eventually changed. CPU, GPU, motherboard, memory, drives, modems, etc. So I can't say that it is a hardware issue since it was happening before hardware changes and after.
I've also moved twice in this time frame. So I think ISP issues can be put aside.
I've been using Win 7 and 8 also during these issues. It doesn't happen after I've done any particular thing. It just isn't there one day. So it is not like I use CCleaner/MalWareBytes/HIjackThis and then the log in is gone. Just one day I will try to log in and 'poof' the auto log in won't. The next time it goes away could be weeks or months. But it will one day it will be gone again.
So here is something to ponder, is it on my end or is it on MPC's server end?
It's only a minor PITA but I would like to figure out why it is happening. Oh, and where. Here or MPC servers.
