One more thing you might look at.

Start, Run, RegEdit.

Navigate to the key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Software\ Microsoft\ Windows\ CurrentVersion\ Policies\ Explorer

Look in the right-hand pane for the value:


If that is set to 1 (enabled) changes to the Desktop (and therefore Taskbar) are only temporary.

It can be used to allow guests to set things the way they like, but have things revert to your preferences when you log on.

If it is set to 0 (disabled) then any changes are saved.

If you don't see that value, then this isn't the problem; nevermind.
