Lost settings upon restart


#1

In Windows 8.1, I lose my settings upon restart. Thanks in advance for assisting me.

Do you Shut down using normal Windows shutdown procedures or simply turn off. If you turn off it does not necessarily save settings.


#3

The only time I’ve seen this happen is when there is a computer profile issue. When you login do you get any notifications that you are using a temporary profile?

Go to C:\Users after you login and you can often tell that you are using a temporary profile by the profile names there.

If you believe you are indeed using a temporary profile, then you would need to create a new profile, move all your data over from your old profile and use the new one going forward.

Create another profile. With Admin access. Although this maybe a bit hard if you are running out of space.

If ccleaner is installer run it. If system restore is enabled disable it
