OE keeps prompting for password.

Operating WinXPHome/OE6. The program fails to remember the password - the remember box is greyed out. I've entered regedt32 to delete all the sub keyes but cannot delete the Protected Storage System final sub key.

Outlook Express refuses to remember passwords
Despite telling Outlook Express to remember your passwords, it keeps forgetting them. Try this:
- Go to the DOS prompt (Start/Shut Down/Restart the computer in MS-DOS Mode).
-- For Windows 95/98 go to your ...\Windows\System directory,
-- for Windows NT/2k/XP go to your ...\WinNT\System32 directory.
- Now type: pstores -install
- The next time you give OE your password, it should be saved.

The problem was with me - apologies - as I had failed to apply ALL the steps to remove all the stored passwords. Thanks everyone.
