Each time I install pluggins e.g. in outlook or change application settings (not microsoft specific) or change windows settings etc.... when I reboot all of these are lost, it appears as though the registry is resetting. I am using XP Pro on a Toshiba Tecra laptop. Another example, when i reboot my scroll wheel is disabled on my mouse, i enable it, all is well, when i reboot it's disabled again. Any ideas?

Is this on a domain?

It turns out the the issue was caused by Spybot Search and destroy. Once I removed this all was ok.
