Move IE passwords to separate partition

My mother has a knack for completely ruining computers so my dad asked me to reinstall windows for her. he is reasonably tech savvy so I figured if I installed reboot restore rx on her computer he could disable it when needed. Some things I have already moved most of the things she should need to be persistent on a regular basis to a separate partition but so far haven't been able to find a way to make IE saved passwords be stored on the second partition. is there a way to do this or is my only option to install some sort of password manager?

The Internet Explorer passwords are stored in the User registry (HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\InternetExplo rer\IntelliForms\Storage2). You can probably write a script to do regular backups and auto-restore on a new windows install.

I think your best option is to use a password manager like LastPass and set it to store data in a different partition.
