"Windows XP does not save user settings" - FIXED!

What fixing bug of Windows XP has to do with trading?

A lot! It was driving me totally and utterly insane for quite a while, when after yet another Automatic Update from Microsoft all in a sudden any customizations I made to Windows layout were not there after reboot. Taskbar gone, menus reordered, windows sizes and positions set to some ridiculous forms and shapes.

Finally, after long, really long google search and combining multiple recommendations I found solution which worked (fingers crossed)

For tech savvy solution is below (registry access is needed, save before you tweak it - one wrong move and your system might become non-operational)

Good luck...

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
