IE7 losing passwords during a reboot
Windows XP SP3 with IE7 (all latest updates). Recently I noticed that after
every reboot I was losing all the stored usernames and passwords in IE7. It
also affects a number of utilities that also seem to use the same credential
storage mechanism (eg Offisync). I think this coincided with a recent
Microsoft Update but I don't know which one. I have searched for other people
with similar issues and it appears that I am not the only person who is
suffering but unfortunately nobody has posted a fix (apart from one guy who
said he had deleted the user profile and started again... not very keen to
follow that advice).

Can anyone help?

Re: IE7 losing passwords during a reboot
Hi Sam,

Try again. It probably is only temporary. Many of MS web services we
off-line as they were updating their own servers with the updates.

If the problem persists, please see your Windows Startup list
(Win+R>msconfig - Startup tab) and try to identify which service is failing.

Nothing to do (per se) with Internet Explorer.

Regards.
