    I have a quick question for you guys. I have Office XP Pro and Windows XP Pro, I recently ran Blackvipers Gaming Pro registry tweak. The only ill effect I had is that every time I open Outlook now to check my e-mail I have to type in my password (yes I have save this password in your password list checked and save password in my account settings) Any ideas, its not so much a problem as it is annoying

    Outlook Express keeps prompting for your password

    This fix also applies to Outlook, other programs that store passwords in the Protected Storage System Provider sub branch of the Registry. It also corrects some issues with Internet Explorer and Autocomplete.

    This is caused by a damaged Registry key. To Remove the broken Key in Windows® XP

    1) Click Start, click Run, and then type regedt32 in the Open box.

    2) Locate the following registry key:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Protected Storage System Provider

    3) Right click the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Protected Storage System Provider key, and then Select Permissions.

    4) In the Permissions for Protected Storage System Provider dialog box, click the Advanced tab. Make sure that the <Username> has Full Control access. Select "Replace permission entries..."

    5) Click OK.

    6) Repeat steps 3 through 5 for each subkey that is listed under the Protected Storage System Provider registry key; otherwise, you may receive the following error message when you try to delete the Protected Storage System Provider key:

    Registry editor could not delete the key currently selected. The key or one of its
    subkeys does not give you delete access.

    Note: The sub keys under Protected Storage System Provide will look something like this:


    7) At this point, you can delete the Protected Storage System Provider key by clicking Delete on the Edit menu. If you prefer, you can first export a copy of this key, and then delete the key. To export the key, right click the Protected Storage System Provider key, and select Export. The exported file can be re-imported by double clicking on it.

    8) When you click Delete, you receive the following message:

    Registry editor will delete the currently selected key and all its subkeys. Do you want to continue
    the operation?

    Click Yes to finish the process.

    9) Start Outlook Express. When Outlook Express checks your mail account(s) you will be able to re-enter your password(s). This process repopulates the Protected Storage System Provider registry key with the correct information for that computer's SID.

    If you want Windows to save passwords the protected storage service must be set to automatic. By applying Blackvipers Gaming service configuration you have disabled it. Just reenable it in computer management/services.
