Foward/Back Buttons IE

Is there any possible way for me to stop my flash movie from reloading if the user selects the forward/back buttons in internet explorer?  The problem is when they are filling out forms and the back/forward button is used, and then they try to go back to the form, it reloads all the form fields they input.

    I provide you an idea here, but I am sure is not easy to implement

    When user fills in the form,
    after filling each field,
    you call a javascript function to write the data to the cookies

    And when you first start the flash,
    call another function to retrieve back the cookie values if any present.

    Ha~~ not easy to implement though~
