    Try this fix: Save Settings on Exit

    Save the .reg file to your desktop. Double-click it to merge it to the registry.

    Reboot.

    If the fix only opens as a text file, right-click it and select Open With > Choose Program... Then, select the Registry Editor.


    If the Registry Editor is not in the list, browse to C:\WINDOWS and select regedit.
