Desktop Modifications Disappear After a Reboot


C

Charles Head

Recently, I realized that changes I made to my desktop and
other parts of my user configuration were disappearing
after a reboot. The changes include things like: 1) I
make the QuickLaunch Tray longer and lock the Taskbar, but
after a reboot, the QuickLaunch Tray is short again and
the Taskbar is unlocked. 2) I sort items in my start menu,
but after a reboot they are back where they started. At
about the same time (I will not swear it is the exact same
time), I realized that almost every time I open Internet
Explorer, the Windows Update web site appears. This
happens both during the same session (i.e., even when I
haven't logged out), or during new sessions (when I log
out and then log on again later), and happens whether I
actually run the update check or not.

Does anyone know how to fix these two problems (which may
be one problem)? Thank you for your help.
