I have just received a new laptop with Windows XP pro SP2, no matter which settings I change windows does not retain them following a reboot. e.g. if I set the mouse to automatically move to default button, this will work until I reboot. Once rebooted the machine loses all the settings. My account is an admin account, it is a personal laptop and I am the only one who will ever use the machine.
Help with this is greatly appreciated.
