Also, have a look at the following information. ALWAYS back up your registry before making any changes.

For information about working in the registry, see the following:

Verify that password caching is enabled. To do so, use Registry Editor to view the DisablePwdCaching DWORD value in the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ Policies\Network

If password caching is disabled, the DisablePwdCaching DWORD value has a value data of 1. To enable password caching, change the value data to 0.

NOTE: If the DisablePwdCaching value does not exist, add this DWORD value with a data value of 0 to the registry key listed above.

Note that you may need to remove this value altogether, and then restart your computer to make caching work.

Also note that if you cancel the classic Windows log on, you won't be able to save password. Disable the password instead of cancelling:
