How to store current window sizes and positions (and restore later)?

Assume I have opened a couple of windows for some applications on my Win 7 desktop.

Can I somehow store the current window positions and sizes (and restore them later (even after a reboot))?

As far as I remember there is a tool which ofers this feature but I don't remember the name.
