When the user starts my program I automatically search their current settings and change them to the ones I would like.  How do I restore the users settings when the exit my program?  I don't want the user to change them.  I want them to be set back automatically on program exit.

You said "When the user starts my program I automatically search their current settings and change them to the ones I would like..."

All you have to do is save the settings you're changing BEFORE to change them in a public or global variable... Then when you end your program, put them back.
