Yahoo and GMail are web-based email aren't they? Without knowing how their
authentication routines work, I don't know anything about the confirmation
every 2 weeks that you mention.
I would guess it's a simpler issue than that, the 'remember password'
function you see in most browsers might be turned off; or, if you cleared
out your temp files, cookies or any other temporary browser files it may
have wiped out all trace of 'remembered' passwords such as those for GMail.
With some browsers (like Firefox) some you can retain form data ('auto
complete'), and 'remember password' type settings whilst clearing out all
other cookies and junk. Other browsers clean out the lot without the option
to save some and delete others.
Did you use a disk-clean up tool (like CCleaner) recently? It may be you
inadvertently told it to remove cookies and other temp files (including
cookies and such, that hold data such as passwords that enable the
'auto-logon' that you're wanting to restore.
I'm not sure it would be anything to do with a Windows update.
