No, you won't loose any settings. The power windows will have to be re-programmed as shown in the owners manual.
Under what conditions does the battery loose power? ie how often do you use the car ? Will the car start?

the radio might loose settings, but will not need a 'code' to make it work again. it is keyed to the vehicle 'vin'
resetting stations is trivial.
but as pegleg asks, why does the battery need replacing? if its just 2 years old this would be done under warranty

Try checking the battery earth straps...i had same problem which turned out to be a corroded strap underneath the engine, left-hand side. Not easy to get to. A diligent RAC chappie found it.
