user account settings lost


D

I have a user account with administrator access whose
settings keep reverting back to the original settings
(toolbar, background, etc.) when I restart. The other
account I have, which was the "owner" account, keeps it's
settings.

Any help?

Hi Dean,

Open Registry Editor [regedit.exe] and go to this location:

NOTE: Backup the registry keys before modifying. Use the File > Export option to backup the key.

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
Set NoSaveSettings value to 0. Repeat the same for this key:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]

Restart Windows.
