Hi Kertik:
it seems that you are logged in using mandetory profile on your win2k domain. so when ever you make any changes to the profile they wont be saved after you log off and login again.
you can ask your system administrator to work around this problem by redirecting your my documents folder to a home folder for you where you can easily manage your files

hoping this will answer your question
