    Hi all - I have a new HP Laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium running
    wirelessly off my upstairs desktop. I decided to buy and install Windows
    7 Home Premium on my Dell Dimension Desktop. I did not do the upgrade
    but rather the clean install route. I had the desktop all setup and
    windows mail installed for my husband and customized everything to my
    preferences. But everytime the computer is rebooted, it loses all of my
    settings, e-mail account is gone, favourites are gone, icons are back to
    default, etc. Does anyone have any advice. TIA.

    Cheers Jan

    Yes but I am saying that everytime I set everything up the way I like,
    after re-boot it is gone back to no e-mail settings, no favourites etc.

    Not sure of your exact situation but the first thing that comes to mind is
    that it might some how be related to User Settings. Try deleting all of your
    existing users and create a new user. Log in under that new user name, make
    some adjustments to your settings and see if they stick around.

    Yeah, her setting are probably still there, she's just logging in
    as a different user from the one for whom the settings were set.

    How does that work if a clean install has been performed, you completely
    fucked in the head, tickle-brained fuckchop?

    Perhaps you should put fuck.brained dot in front of your email address,
    you flap-eared pisswit.

    Neither pc gives me a logon prompt - the OS just loads straight to
    Windows.

    If that's the case you've most likely not created a user account that
    the settings can be saved to.
