No password caching after reboot

Toshiba satellite laptop / L30-101

Specs: Windows XP, Celeron 1.46 GHz/896 MB RAM
Hi, I've been running WinXP PRO x86 for the
last two years for my business purposes only!
But since 1 month ago, everytime I reboot, it
deletes all my stored passwords, that is:
1.- Some Web sites passwords (intranet), even
if I check the "Save password" box.
2.- MSN Messenger. Now everytime I reboot the
login/password fields are empty, although I
always check "remember" boxes.

I double checked for viruses and malware,
found none.
My computer is in a domain, but I have
administrative privileges. Windows are up to
date along with Symantec AntiVirus...

PLEASE HELP!!!

This started a month ago? What changed immediately preceding the problem? Have you tried a System Restore?

I don't know exactly from which point it could went wrong, considering time
line of a last 1-2 month..System restore should be a perfect solution, but my
system administrator unfortunately turned it down, long time ago after the
clean install, to prevent any hypothetical virus infections..(I newer quite
understand this act).
Anyway, I think, my problem could be related with a software, which I
installed in between indicated timeline - Tune Up Utillities 2009. It has some
registry tools, which could messed up my registry, but I'm not sure though. I
don't have any registry backups either..So I guess if it is the registry
issue, then i'm in a dead end, but I'll survive! :)

You should check with your IT Person.

Ever since I installed IE7, I too lost the ability to Cache Network Passwords. I installed IE7 after Service Pack 3, and the normal USER login prompts me for Network Share password every time I Reboot. My original thought was that IE7 erased existing passwords, but that's not the case.

I Check "Save Password" but if I reboot it's like I did not save the password.

I did discover if I login using default administrator account it connects to the computer on the network and I see the shares, so it has to do with my USER (Which is also an Administrator Account).

I also found if I click on Websites in "Network Neighborhood" that I maintain, I receive the dialog box to enter password (Blank) if I hit cancle then the Password box appears again, but this time with password.

This has to be a REGISTRY issue. I have scoured the Internet but found very few post that reflects this issue.

Did you find a solution?
