Save password feature not working in IE

We are running Citrix PS 4 with WIndows 2003 R2. When our users go to our help desk web page, they need to log in using their Windows username and password (Active Directory). When they are prompted they will enter their username as domain\username and then their password. Now there is an option to save their password, but when they select this and go back to the web page later, it will prompt them for their password again. The username field will be filled out. Is there a setting somewhere to allow the password to actually be saved? Maybe a policy?

Thanks,
Matt

It took a good while for that page to load on my wireless connection.  So be patient.

When I go into IE options, everything is already checked for autocomplete, etc. The service for Protected storage is already running as well. This is in a terminal server environment with Citrix Presentation Server 4 and Windows 2003 server R2 SP2.

Thanks

This seemed to have done it! I guess the next question would be if there is a way to add the site via group policy instead of having all the users add it to their IE. Does anyone know if there is a policy setting? I couldn't find one.

Thanks
