Windows XP desktop settings not saved? (1 Viewer)

Hi there,

I've got a strange issue with my new XP installation. All fixes that I do to the desktop are gone after a reboot. For instance, disable the screensaver, and after a reboot it's back again. this applies to all desktop related settings like sound, screensaver, theme etc.

I've read about a tweak with gpedit.msc but this doesn't work for me unfortunately. Any other thoughts?

Thanks

have you checked your event log? maybe there is some reason your user regestery can not be writen to (readonly file or permisions maybe, don't know how it would get that way).

Hi mrkaras,

thanks for your answer. No, nothing in the logs. However, after more googling, I found this one http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555512/en-us, which solved my problem.

Scary thing is that I don't really know what I've been doing here......

Cheers
