Have you tried reenabling those services? That actually sounds like a good thing in IE. I dont know how to get them back but I suggest you try using Opera or Firefox. Two really nice browsers that are much more secure and customizable than IE.

well i don't have an idea to get those saved passwords back but see "prompt me to save password" option in the browser settings if it is unchecked then make it check btw don't try to play with services you don't know cause windows sucks
