Dear expert,

I'm trying to help someone out who's Internet Explorer 7 stopped remembering login names and passwords (on numerous websites that require a login) but I can't fix it. User names and passwords are lost when the computer is rebooted.

The person I'm trying to help is notorious for changing all sorts of computer settings without thinking about the consequences, so he most likely changed some (registry?) setting himself.

Do you know how to get logins and passwords back between reboots?
