    For some reason, after one of the XP updates I think, my computer no longer will save and restore my settings. Once I reboot I have to reconfigure my wallpaper, desktop icon arrangement, e-mail through outlook express, realjukebox, internet explorer favorites etc. It's driving me nuts!!

    Please help me out with some ideas on how to fix the problem. I'm not completely inept when it comes to computers, but not a computer whiz either.

    One thing to check is if your C:\Documents And Settings\Username folder and files in it is readonly or not. I am probably wrong but that is what i would try first, or even create a new user account and see if it saves settings for that user

    Hiya

    Not used to XP yet, but for the All Users folder, rightclick and choose Properties. Is it showing Read Only, as spopple mentioned?

    Also, do you not have one with your name in there?

    Regards
