Windows XP is not remembering my settings

Dunno whats happening windows does not remember the settings i have assigned…for example ive made winrar my default but it keeps getting unchecked or my msn is getting rooted in always and forms…
i dont think its a virus…cause im using a firewall and firefox, and dont surf much…

Have you installed any new programs that might change the defaults…

go here and look under folders

If you look down the list you will find this below I think this might help.

Folder Views - Keep Settings

Go to - Start/Run/Regedit and Delete these two keys, reboot then re-set your folder options.


If you prefer not to deal with the registry, you can use the edit from here:

Restore Folder Views (Line 2)
