Outlook 2003

In my Outlook email file folders I have gone thru and Customized the "Current View" of certain folders to make searching for emails the best and easiest from my point of view.  For example in my folder entitled "Invoices" I have organized the display to include: From, Subject, Received Date and Size headers fields (see attached).
 
I find that every time when I format my headers in the Outlook folders this way (the way I desire using the "Customize Current View" option in Outlook), within a couple days the header format goes back to the way it was before I Customized the folder (see second file attached).  In certain mail folders it makes no sense to have the "To" column listed (as the emails are addressed to me in the first place) but instead what I want is to have the PC display "From" in the header fields.  
 
Why does Outlook always de-Customize or re-format what I setup with the headers and is there any way to make the system stop doing this and leave my Customizations alone?

Hi - are there Windows or Office updates being pushed to you via corporate policy or something like that?  It's odd that the settings are not holding.  I tested this and it worked ok on my pc.  
Maybe it's a profile issue?  Do others have the same problem?  Thanks.
