Vista won't remember passwords

Specs: Vista Home Premium, Pentiuam Dual Core/2GB

Hello,
I am having trouble geting windows to remember my passwords. Example:
I'll open up Internet Explorer and conect to my router (192.168.1.1) a popup will show asking for the password. I type it in and check "Remember My Password" then it will log in. I close Internet Explorer then reopen it again, do the same thing (connect to router [192.168.1.1]) and it asks for the password again, even though I already click "remember my password" earlier. Another exmaple is when I connect to my mac (samba is turned on the mac) from the Network folder, and it will do the same thing. I type in the username and password check "remember my password" and it will log in. BUT, when I restart, and do the same thing as above, it will ask for the username and password again even though I check "remember my password" earlier.
Is there anyway to correct this issue?
Thank-you very much.

Is this happening to just internet explorer passwords?

If so open internet explorer/ tools/ internet options then advance and click reset.

I don't belive so, because when I go into "My Network Places" Or Just "Network" in vista, it does the same thing. "Another exmaple is when I connect to my mac (samba is turned on the mac) from the Network folder, and it will do the same thing. I type in the username and password check "remember my password" and it will log in. BUT, when I restart, and do the same thing as above, it will ask for the username and password again even though I check "remember my password" earlier"

do you use a firewall by any chance? it could be blocking these settings try disabling your firewall and see if that helps.

Yes, Windows Firewall. I turned it off, same thing still happens.

Also, If it says this, it requires administrators permission. And you do not have administrators privages, then mite have a hacker in you system. Trojan Worm, in email, that says, "I Love you-send this to all on your list"! Or Sent this it will bring you luck, bull-! Hackers like to use you hookup to the internet, and they like to steal all that you have, so, they take away your, administrator privages, and put them incomplete control of your system. It has happened to me serval times. Hope this has helped you get you system checked out by a tech, not the system, as will report that it is fine, grin, in reality, the hacker is watching you and reporting, its ok! Or there are sites that have hidden urls that take you to a look a like site that will seal your administor right, and disable what ever they want, look into this too!
