STRANGE XP Password Problem

I have a new computer that came pre-loaded with XP Home Edition. No matter what settings I select, the system WILL NOT remember ANY passwords in ANY application. I'll get the pop up box asking me if I want Windows to remember logons & passwords at browser screens but it does not remember them, when I visit the same site, I'll get the dialog box again, offering to save the info.

My Outlook/Outlook Express is also affected, although I have everything set correctly to remember my mail account password, I have to enter it EVERY time I access my mailbox? You can actually see the checkmark next to the "Remember Password" at the logon screen, but its greyed out??? Does anyone have ANY idea of what could be causing this??? ANY help or suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated!:confused:

Have you disabled any services? like protected storage? I belive if that service is not running it will not store passwords and such, but i'm not 100% sure, cehck to see it's status.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
