    Unable to login on SOME secure sites

    I may have some incorrect windows 10 security settings
    I am experiencing problems on some secure sites (but not all) that require login with password. They fail to log me in with my credentials using Chrome, but when I try the same with e.g. Edge I have no problem. Same when I login using my wife's computer using Chrome I have no problem..
    What I have tried so far:
    1. disable all extentions
    2. Clean browser data (cookies etc.)
    3. Enabled Java
    4. Reset Chrome to "Default" settings
    5. Uninstall/Re-installed Chrome
    6. Posted a message on the Chrome user forum (no answer)
    None of these measures resulted in a successful login with Chrome
    However, logging in to the same website with e.g. Edge worked all fine.
    Also, and that is the most surprising, I AM able to login on my wife's computer using Chrome, leading me to believe that the problem is on a higher level, maybe OS level?
    I am using Windows 10 Ver. 1803.17134.376

    What to do next?

    Hi Theo

    When you say you clear Browsing data did you clear all the items under the advance heading?

    When you hit one of these secure sites do you actually key in your password or is it being filled in by the machine?

    When you uninstalled chrome did you remove your profile directory or at least rename it? (Rename so you can always reference it later)

    Win10 Version 21H2 Pro and Home, Win11 Pro and Home

    I had an issue yesterday with a few sites on different versions of the OS and 5 different machines including Linux. Overnight the problem seemed to have gotten fixed. The sites should have been innocent such as tvguide.com, distrowatch.org, Microsoft's Insider .iso download of Version 1809 Build 18272. The browser didn't make a difference, same problem on Firefox, IE11 and Edge.
