client variables disappearing

A ColdFusion project is on a computer that was upgraded from Windows 2003 to 2008.
The version of ColdFusion is 8. The project was originally done in version 3 or 4, is frames based, and stores client variables in the registry.

At least 1 user can't see client variables anymore-error like "x undefined in client". Most users are ok.
Small test programs outside the project show that for that for at least 1 of the users, client variables are lost but session variables aren't.
When users with and without the problem sign in to project from each other's computers, the error comes up.
Tried expiring CFID and CFTOKEN but no luck.

How can this happen?
Aside from switching client variables to session variables (might have its own problems), what can be done to fix it?
