How to store and save variables without using constants

I have an application that needs a username and password, and both are entered in a login form at the beginning of the the application startup. The problem is, the application causes the system to restart several times, and I need it to save that username and password that was entered at the beginning of the application so that way it can keep using those values later after the restart.

I think you can save them on the Windows Registry:

SaveSetting("MyApp","MySection","Username",txtUsername.Text)
SaveSetting("MyApp","MySection","Password",txtPassword.Text)

Then, you can retrieve it using GetSetting:
GetSetting("MyApp", "MySection", "Username")

Additionally, you may want to store also the current DateTime, so you can also check if there's been not too much time since this data was saved in the Registry

it depends on your project type (web application or a windows application)
if its a web application then you can use registry or dupt the settings to an XML file and on rebooting of your machine you can read the values back again

in case of a windows application then either registry or an XML file or you can save the settings to the application configuration file too.
