O.P. Messenger does not remember me after restart
I've been trying to find a thread on the forum so I don't start a new one about this issue, but with no success.

Anyway, since recently every time I restart my computer I have to type in my email and password in WLM, because it forgets me every time. I didn't install any new programs at the time this problem started occurring.

I've tried repairing the installation, uninstalling and installing WLM again, I've searched the Internet and the only solution I was able to find was to create a new computer user account and transfer everything there, however, I'd would rather not do that.

Does anyone have any better solution for my problem?

Thanks!:)

P. S. I'm using Windows XP SP3, WLM Build 14.0.8064.206 and MP!L 4.81.0.358

Are you sure that the "Remember me" checkbox is ticked? Failing that, have you installed any programs such as Northon Ghost or Deep Freeze etc. that might be reverting your applications' settings?

Yes, the Remember me checkbox is ticked and I tick it every day when I type in my details after turning on my PC. I haven't installed and such software as I have never used them before and have no interest in trying them out.

It's getting quite annoying I must say...

I would suggest creating a new account and just test it, see if your account is actually the problem. If you create a new account and you still get the same problem then it's not your account. Also have you tried changing your password in case that is the problem?

a few questions:
You mean it is unticked each time you restart your computer?

Does it also revert to unticked state after you've completely closed Messenger (right click on the systemtray icon and choose 'exit') and have restarted just Messenger?

A thing you can try:
- Reboot computer.
- Start Messenger, at this point I assume the 'remember me'-box is unticked, correct?
- Fill in your email and password and tick the 'remember me'-box.
- Sign in.
- Wait a while until everything is loaded in Messenger (this can take a few minutes!)
- Sign out again.
- Is the box still checked??
- If the box is still checked, uncheck it.
- Sign in again.
- Again wait a while...
- Now sign out.
- Close Messenger completely (right click on systemtray and choose 'exit').
- Reboot computer.
- Start Messenger.
- Fill in your email and password.
- Tick the 'remember me'-box
- Sign in.
- Wait a while...
- Sign out.
- Close Messenger completely (thus via systemtray icon).
- Reboot computer
- Start Messenger again.
- Are your credentials filled in and is the box ticked??

Indeed, I would be very extremely surprised if this is a serverside issue as that doesn't make much sense. It is very most likely an issue on your computer. Though it could be some very rare fluke depending on your email address though since the email address is used as a base to store your settings in the registry.

This said, it might (very very very remotely) be a bad registry and/or an error on your HDD at the exact place where the registry hive is written to your HDD. In such a way that Messeger can't read in the current settings and thus reverts to default for some settings. Removing every registry setting related to Messenger, and then compacking/defragmenting your registry might help.... (you need special 3rd party program for that as the build in Windows defrag program will not work).

That happens when you uninstall windows live sign in assistant.  Since this is required (it's required though they tell you its optional) for WLM you have to uninstall all instances of WLM and install both the live sign in assistant and WLM again. 

That was the only way I could fix the problem.
Just when you think you have it all worked out...someone reworks it..DOH!

Actually, it is optional. I've never had a problem with its absence on my computer, so it was probably the reinstallation of Messenger itself that fixed the issue.

Yes, the box stays ticked when I close WLM completely and then launch it again. However, when I restart my computer I get a WLM that doesn't remember me, all boxes are unticked and I have to fill in my details again.

As for the sign-in assistant, I tried uninstalling it, nothing changed, then I completely uninstalled WLM and reinstalled it again together with the sign-in assistant but still had the same problem.

TReKiE told me he was working on a solution, I'll try to work it out with him.
