sqlServer Management Studio not remembering users & passwords

Since I had a new Windows build for my PC I have had the very annoying bug that SQLServer Management Studio would not remember the username & passwords for hosts.

The Workarounds tab here provides the solution, but is essence it is this:

SQL Server Management Studio 2008 delete the file C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Tools\Shell\SqlStudio.bin

SQL Server Management Studio 2005 delete the file – same as above answer but the Vista path. C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming \Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Tools\Shell\mru.dat
