hi,a friend of mine emailed me asking why after years of using messenger it suddenly forgot her sign in details which are always checked to "remember me". i have tried everything to solve the problem,even got in contact with Microsoft(waste of time that was)but failed,thanks in advance for any help.its not a big deal she says its just annoying.

thanks for the advice,did not work,just left a userprofile folder on desktop which refused to delete,she said that the[HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-796845957-926492609-725345543-1003 was a different one which began with s-1-5-21-8,she undid the value then she could delete the desktop profile folder,she passes on her thanks again for your efforts
