Sys-data needs re-entering after each boot !
After a successful installation of Windows 7, I have the following irritating problem:
Some data needs to be entered after each boot or even more frequently.
For instance, the username/password for the "Dial-UP/VPN" Internet connection is not kept across boots.
The setting of the desktop is not kept (e.g., the size of desktop icons).
This seems to be a system-wide permissions' problem to write to a certain directory (e.g., a directory where the system keeps the data is read only).
Can you suggest in which directory/file Windows 7 keeps desktop settings and login credentials - so I could check this directory/file permissions ?

Can Windows 7 RTM 7600 build upgrade Windows 7 Ultimate 6.1.7229, or would I need to do a clean install ?
If a clean install is needed, is here an HOWTO for moving all my software, files, and settings to the new Windows 7 RTM 7600 build ?
