Why does my computer settings change by themselves? I do not allow automatic updates.

What changes are being made?

Computers do NOT make changes, but you may have programs running that just may make them or prevent your changes from being saved.

Thank You for answering. The changes are mostly to text size, opening a new window in a small box, having to re-enter user names when I check the remember me box, etc.

Thanks for the hints to what is not being saved. Some of the following may be different on some of the different versions of Windows.
What program is not saving the text size?

New window, most programs will remember the size IF it is resized by dragging the window to the size one wants. It will NOT remember that it had been set by clicking the Maximized button. These are always the last window size of the running program that is closed. So if you have a pop up in IE that is a small pane, then when IE is restarted, it will use the small pane.

The user name and password, can be that the site does NOT allow this, there is clean up program to clear cookies and other temp files, and if in a "Work" machine the IT department may have settings NOT to allow them to be saved.
