Online banking and computer security. Why do I need to register my computer

I have Chase bank and when I got a new computer I had to get a pin or some type of security to register the computer. I have a client that has to keep getting a pin to access Chase online and he is using the same computer. I have not had to re-register my computer.
He has had issues with a couple of other banks so I am thinking something in the computer is resetting? Or maybe an IE setting?

He is probably deleting all of his cookies including the ones from the banks.

In Internet Options...
General tab
The Delete browsing history is probably checked
Click on the Delete button and uncheck cookies - click cancel - ok

I delete all my cookies all the time but I have not been asked to re-register my computer.

Also make sure he does not have some third party app that clears cookies and java cache

I have a Chase account and do online banking with it. It happened to me everytime I clears out my cookies just like Dave and Big said.

Have you tried it on different PC? You mentioned that you have not been asked to re-register your computer. I'll say pick a PC, log on to your Chase account, log off, delete all browsing history (cookies, history, cache, etc) and see what happens.

Oh and make sure you are not using private browsing :)
