    1. Don't install the patch.
    - or -
    2. Don't use IE at all.

    There is a quick registry fix available which will allow the username/password to work again (don't have to manually edit the registry - double clicking on the registry file will automatically install it for you - but it's still editing the registry)

    I'm providing the file to customers who insist on having the ability to use the username/pass via URL format.

    You can download an autoinstall from my site
    There is a disclaimer inside the README.TXT file
    If you don't know what you're doing, don't download/use the file.

    Had to say it.....Download here

    Go on, have a guess
    Remember that if you install the hack (or recommending others to) you are then exposing yourself to a security risk in IE, that's the reason MS disabled it in the first place! :rolleyes:

    as stated in the Post, No registry modifications i allready know of that and do not recommend it.

    is there a way around it eg server side that will pass all that information insted of IE

    Not that I'm aware of at this time

    I think the only way to get around passing the info along via the URL is to use java in some way (not much of an expert)
    I've seen many password protected areas that use java to verify username/passwords - but I assume it'd mean a complete rewrite of how cpanel works now
