I recently had major virus problems that have been sorted professionally and
I now have up to date anti-virus, adware and firewall software.

Since my computer was 'cleaned' it no longer retains info after applications
are closed. This particularly relates to web pages where settings for
individual sites are not saved after closure. I thought this was the job of
'cookies'. I have my settings to allow cookies to be installed.

I am sure that there must be some basic settings changes that have to be
made but I don't know what. Alternatively is it safer not to have such
settings saved?

Without knowing what the "professional" did to "sort" your
computer problem and what exactly what software [and the
settings therein] it is impossible to tell you. But a
professional would have explained to you what they did and
how to use it.
Go back to the "professional" you used and get your answers
or your money back.
