Windows XP menu animation keeps coming back

I am running as Administrator on Windows XP x64 SP2 all updates installed.  When I go to Display Properties (right-click on desktop, choose properties), Appearance tab, Effects, uncheck "Use the following transition effect for menus and tooltips:" and uncheck this to disable the productivity killing menu and window animations it works.  Then about an hour later it re-enables itself.  I can't for the life of me figure out how to disable it for good.  Any ideas?

There is one thing to try, but it may just re-enable like the path you choose does:
Right Click on My Computer, Click properties.
Click the Advanced Tab, then the Properties Button under the Performance Section.
Here you can disable settings for animation etc.
I usually diable all except the bottom 2.
Hope this helps!

In there, I have it set to custom and nothing is checked, yet windows are still animating.

Just trying to break through the more simple options:
1. Using TweakUI, you can enable/disable Windows Animation.
2. To do this in the registry, edit:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics
Double click MinAnimate or Add Value of type REG_SZ.
Setting MinAnimate to 0 turns off the animation while a setting of 1 enables it.

I've tried all this before.  What I latest is disable the windows animation, then immediately reboot.  So far so good.
