REGISTRY WON'T SAVE CHANGES

You have probably already answered this for someone else, but I couldn't find it in the previous answers.

I have two machines I am dealing with that have had software downloaded that has changed the homepage and search page settings.  One is a Windows 2000 machine, the other is XP.

I have removed the downloaded software, I have changed the Internet Options.  I have gone into the registry and reset the start page, the search assistant, and the search bar.  I have changed or deleted every reference to the two programs I can find.  Problem?  When I reboot the systems the registries either rewrite or default to the previous settings.  I am telling the registry "OK" before I close out.

What am I missing?  Or is there a "save" function for regedit that I'm not seeing?
