Thank you for your response Brian. In this location of my registry, I have
two keys:

1) Default - "Value Not Set"

and

2) LocalAppData (not AppData). The value on this second key is:
"%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data"


You should more keys that just the LocalAppData key. You should not delete
any that you see there already.

So I did as you instructed, and rebooted. The problem is still occuring.
Should I delete the old key?


What "old key"? You said the AppData key didn't exist and that you added
it. "Local AppData" is not an "old" key but a completely separate one and
should not be modified (unless it's wrong or you deliberately want it to use
a different folder than the default).

I have the keys AppData, Cache, Cookies, Desktop, Favorites, History, Local
AppData, Local Settings, NetHood, Personal, PrintHood, Programs, SendTo,
Start Menu, Startup, and Templates. These are all folders used by the
typical Windows user profile. I have my "Personal" key redirected to
another disk so that "My Documents" is not on my C drive and I could, if I
wished, change the other ones to follow suit, but I find moving only My
Documents to be satisfactory.

Here's another web site to check:

When you compare the registry keys for each user, do you see differences? if
so, what are they? Did you also examine the other links contained in the web
site I suggested?

I copied the registry entries from my wife's account to my registry and still
the same thing.

Not sure what happened but yesterday it remebered passwords after I
initially logged in and didn't close Outllook. Every time I opened Outlook I
had to reenter.

Today everything is working fine.

I have no clue why but it seems to be working again.
