Hello,
I'm trying to utilize the .NET FileSystemWatcher to monitor a directory for changes. My script works but I've noticed the registered events are lost at log out. Is there a way to make these registered events persist through logout/reboot?

It is an expected behavior. The event subscription will only available if the PowerShell is running. When you close the PS console, the event registration will be cleared.

You may turn on automatic logon and run the PowerShell script as a logon script with -noexit. I have never tried it but if it is an option for you then you can check it out.. :-)
Set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
objShell.Run("powershell.exe -noexit c:\scripts\test.ps1")
