Changes won't accept. - Windows XP/2000/ME

We had some sort of corruption on our XP computer. Now, when we change a setting, it doesn't stick. The setting goes back to the original state. What gives?...

    Something like that is hard to track down. Most settings are stored in the
    registry. If you really want to troubleshoot, you could go to
    [url]www.sysinternals.com[/url] and grab regmon - it will monitor your registry and
    track all of the changes that are made. That could help you to find out what
    is changing your settings back, but it's not exactly the most friendly tool
    for beginners.
