Resistry Keeps Reverting After Reboot RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am trying to change a few settings to replicate how another xp machine is,  however most settings in the needed hive keep reverting back to their value when I reboot and if I delete the value, it reappears after reboot also.

    The hive is \\my computer\HKLM/software\microsoft\windows nt\currentversion\winlogon

    I get a file called test.sdb on the desktop if I change some gpedit settings but I'm not sure which ones specifically. if this is unrelated to the issue please ignore it.

    How do I find the cause of this or stop regedit from reverting these reg keys?

  • This can be due to group policies, SCCM scripts, startup scripts, or any schedules task. Please verify if anyone of these is causing trouble.

  • Hi,

    I installed .net 1.1 and it works somewhat now, I was trying to configure it not to use automatic logon but use the welcome screen not classic logon though that can be in with ctrl alt delete so I installed .net now it works fine now even on a domain.

    as for the test.sdb file, I just reset gpedit to how it is when you first install windows and I don't see that sdb file anymore.

    Thanks.

  • Hi

    I don't have power shell or any start-up scripts or scheduled tasks,, I get this file when I change gpedit but I'm not sure why, Iv'e tried to replicate some registry and group policy settings from a computer which works as I need it and doesn't show this file but they change back if I reboot, I have tried gpolicy /update too.

  • Can be group policies only, can you remove the system from domain and check? OR move the system a OU without any GP's
