I need to make a change to my registry in windows 7.  However once I make the change there is not a way to save it.  The change works fine but on every reboot it reverts to the old setting.

This is what i was trying to resolve but it did not work.  So I decided to disable the registry subkey.  It fixed my problems but obviously IIS or something is re-enabling it.
Well like BitBlitz said most likely there is an app that is changing this back.

I would try to search for that app that is changing that.

Until then you can create a batch file to modify the reg entry at startup.

REGEDIT.EXE  /S "C:\regchanges.reg"

and example of a reg entry change that you would store in the regchanges.reg file

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce]
"Shutdown"="c:\\windows\\system32\\shutdown.exe -s -t 60"


best of luck!
