I am noticing that if the OS is unexpectedly shut down then all the state data in IE is lost. I am assuming it is cookie data. An example is Google preferences. I set it to display 100 results per page, not filter my results and open in a new window. Every time the computer is "accidently" powered off upon reboot Google reverts to showing 10 results per page, filtered results and opening in the same page (the default settings). This goes for every site that I have remember my login name.

I am runing Win7 Build 7100 RC1

I am curious if anyone else is experiencing this issue.

Can you check the cookies in your app data directory before and after a hard reboot to see if it deletes those cookies?

C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Cookies
