  • This issue is typically seen with Domain computers or roaming profiles. Just to confirm you are not on a domain or using roaming profiles?

    Did you upgrade for Windows XP to Windows 7?

    Can you create a new user account, login with the new account change some settings, reboot the computer and login again and tell me if the settings are saved or not?
