Problem for saving modifications of registry in next reboot

Q: Problem for saving modifications of registry in next reboot


I have been infected 2 days ago and Windows Update didn't work anymore (error code 80246008). So I have cleaned the corrupt files with MicrosoftFixit found on the Web.

Finally, I have got the BITS service working again with the following batch program wich calls himself the "BITS.reg" file :

sc create BITS binpath= "c:\windows\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs" start= delayed-auto
regedit /s c:\Users\fab\Desktop\BITS.REG
net start bits
rmdir %windir%\softwaredistribution /s /q
regsvr32 /s wuaueng.dll
regsvr32 /s wuaueng1.dll
regsvr32 /s atl.dll
regsvr32 /s wups.dll
regsvr32 /s wups2.dll
regsvr32 /s wuweb.dll
regsvr32 /s wucltui.dll
net start wuauserv

I execute this bacth file as Administrator and the BITS key appears in registry with Windows Update working fine.

The issue is that the modifications in the registry base is not taken into account for the next startup of Windows 7 : I can't see anymore the BITS key and I have to run this bacth program every time there's a new startup of Windows 7.

Is it a problem of right persmissions on this Key ? Have I got to change the owner as Administrator ?

Here is the file BITS.reg :


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00



"First Counter"=dword:00000774
"Last Counter"=dword:00000784

Preferred Solution: Problem for saving modifications of registry in next reboot

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Problem for saving modifications of registry in next reboot

Hi, lets get this straight you open regedit and the Bits service is there (as you posted). Then you restart your computer and do not run the .Bat file if you open regedit the bits service is completely missing from the registry? OR is it that Bits is simply not running in services (automatic delayed start)? Is your user name fab?

I am running AdAware/AdWatch on Windows XP with IE6.
AdWatch is showing a continuous attempt to modify the registry. This is what the typical modification attempt log shows:
registry modification detected.

Ad-Watch event log
value: search page
new data:http://www.google.com

Is this connected to MS' Windows Live Page that comes up with the opening of IE6?
Any input or help on what is going will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

A:Ad-Watch showing continuous registry modifications

It looks like you had microsoft live search set as your search engine possibly when you installed a windows live component and then you installed something like google toolbar which wants to change it to google.

Did you approve or deny the change?

OR just turn off adwatch , make the change and turn it back on.

I have a problem whereby I am trying to make these simple changes:

- Autoplay options, specifically associating windows media player to open automatically when a dvd is inserted
- Un-tick 'Auto hide' of the taskbar
- Remove some unneeded toolbars from taskbar

I make all the necessary changes and then after a reboot, the taskbar is auto hidden again.

The PC has admin rights, I'm shutting down completely, I have even gone through a few registry changes to force autoplay to work, but it doesn't.

I have even ran reimage.com's XP fixer, TNA.

I have just bought a new monitor, a 22" hanns g widescreen with a resolution of 1680 x 1050. It is HDMI so I have connected it to my Nvidia Ti4600 graphics card using a DVI-D to HDMI cable.

I can select the resolution and everything is fine, but whenever I switch the PC on the resolution has been reset back to 1024 x 768. I assumed that once applied, the new resolution would be saved and used at reboot. The annoying thing is that as well as always having to set the resolution, I can't arrange my desktop icons as they all end up crammed back in the middle of the screen after a reboot!

I have done a lot of searching but surprisingly can't find an answer to the problem. Can anyone assist? Is there a way to get XP to boot at 1680 x 1050 or correctly setup for my new monitor?

Hello all,

I have an issue with Windows Vista Ultimate not saving any changes after a reboot. I had an alureon.trojan Windows Security Essentials caught, but couldn't remove it. I had to download a tool to create a bootable USB drive to clean it off. After it said it removed the alureon I rebooted and upon loading Windows desktop it restarts on it's own. I can only get it to load Windows Desktop for about 2 seconds and it restarts.

I am able to get into Safe Mode and have made changes to the registry and also in msconfig, but everytime it reboots the changes are not saved so I'm kind of dead in the water. I've deleted reg keys, deleted files off the desktop, in Windows Explorer, tried changing startup services in msconfig, and also even created a new admin profile, but everything is restored back to the way it was after a reboot. I've never come across this before and I'm stumped.

Anyone out there have any ideas?

Much appreciated.

Heres my problem,
If i do as much as log out of my computer my personalized settings (such as putting a toolbar on the start bar, or moving an icon on my desktop) wont save. I get a window that says "Setting up Personalized Settings" when I logon to my account, or any others I create.

I've noticed that every time i reboot my windows xp sp3, the other person that im sharing my connection with cant get connected to the internet later.

Personally, I'd solve it with a broadband router.

You might try this process.
Disable ICS.
Run the repair below.
Enable ICS.

See if that keeps it from losing it's settings.

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands:

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults, type: netsh int ip reset reset.log

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults, type: netsh winsock reset catalog

I am trying to suppress all balloon tip messages. I've followed instructions to manually set the DWORD EnableBalloonTips to '0' (disable) in the registry, and this works until I log off. When I reboot (logon) it is back to '1' (enable). Also, I tried to use Tweakui to set this as disabled. Again, when I log off and back on, viola! It's back to '1' (enabled). I went in under safe mode as administrator and set this to disabled. Log off and back on and once again it's auto-magically enabled. Is there really a way to disable balloon tips and keep it disabled. I've looked everywhere I can think of and no one addresses the problem with this mysterious automatic enabling after disabling. Seems that while everyone talks about ways to disable it... no one talks about what to do to save this setting upon shutdown/logoff. I'm sure I am not the only user who has experienced this problem. Can someone help with this? Thanks in advance, and I really appreciate this forum.

Hi all, I wonder if I could get some help?


I started to notice that google searches weren't displaying the correct results. e.g. searching for Spotify brought up loads of Spotify-related links, but not the official Spotify site itself.

After running various checks, I found I had a fair bit of malware, which I proceeded to get rid of using malwarebytes, spybot and a couple of others.

The issue appears to be that something managed to change my proxy settings in internet options (LAN settings, Use a proxy service...). A note at the bottom of that window would also advise me that some settings can only be changed by an Administrator (That's me!)

Un-checking the box wouldn't work, the proxy would always be present.

I searched online and saw others had similar issues, and someone suggested a solution that lots of people reported success with. Changing the registry setting under: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings, and changing the ProxySettingsPerUser key from 0 to 1.

This works perfectly, until I restart my machine, and the proxy settings get added again.

Any ideas at all how I can solve this?

My problem is about saving and restoring the registry under Windows 7.

I made a backup of my registry (using the "File -> Export" menu in "regedit.exe").

Then I tried to restore it as is using the "File -> Import" menu in "regedit.exe" (and I also tried using the command "reg import" in command line in "safe mode with command line").
It fails.
Fortunately I was on a test machine.
I'm very concerned about not knowing how to properly save and restore my registry.

Thank you for helping.
Best regards.

A:Saving and restoring the registry under Windows 7

Hello Lea,

The problem with using that method is that you will not be able to completely restore all of the registry since it's currently in use.

One option would be to create restore points that would include a back of the full registry. A system restore would restore the registry to how it was in the selected restore point.Registry - Backup and Restore
Another option would be to create a system image. It includes everything.Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup
Hope this helps,

I have uninstalled CommonName Toolbar on Windows XP. Used Ad-Ware and a Registry Clean Program to remove entries from the registry and Startup for the CNBABE.DLL that loads during the start of Windows XP but cannot find the file.

Each time I cleaned the registry or removed the rundll32 CNBABE.Dll from the Startup it appears again. It will not save the removal from the registry or startup.

I installed CommonName Toolbar again and then uninstalled again and still have the same problem.

How can I get the registry and removal of the rundll32 \commonname\toolbar\CNBabe.dll from the Startup permanently in Windows XP.

Thanks for anyone who can help. Saw a program called Spybot. Haven't tried it yet.

I would think all the 'techies' and many others know that the XP registry can be reloaded from the original registry entries stored in C:\Windows\repair in accordance with the procedure outlined here -> http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307545 .

The problem with this is that ALL changes since the original install are gone and recovering data from or repairing damage to the damaged registry files now saved to c:\windows\tmp\ is problemetic.

So, today, with a system running fine, I ran Recovery Console and used the copy command to copy all 5 Registry files of my current install to a new folder in C:\Windows.

I then booted normally and copied the .log and .sav files from C:\Windows\system32\Config, then also copied the systemprofile folder from C:\Windows\system32\Config there, as well as the userdiff and userdiff.log files.

I then copied all that over to a flash drive.

I hope I never need them, but at least I now have them reasonably secure.

Hi Seven Forums

Have a strange recurring issue and hopefully you guys can help me home in on the problem! Not 100% sure it's software over hardware though.

Situation is - saving a file in Visual Studio 2013 to my external hard drive (usb, exFAT, hardware encrypted) always causes an AppHang. The program stops responding, and any other program which tries to access that location on the drive does the same. These processes refuse to be killed and the only way out is to hard shut down the computer (regular shut down just sits there..). After doing so, chkdsk reveals that the location on the drive has corruption issues, which it then fixes and all is fine. Until the next time I try to save a file that is.

Some more information:

Only started happening about a month ago, before that the files saved fine.
Doesn't happen if I use the drive on another computer running similar Visual Studio
Other programs can save the same files fine. The problem did once occur with P4V, but I can't say with 100% certainty that it wasn't due to forgetting to fix with chkdsk following one of the reboots.
Tried saving files to other USB hard drives (FAT32 and NTFS, yet to try another exFAT) works fine.
My initial thought was PSU not being quite up to powering the drive, as I was already concerned that the wattage wasn't high enough for the machine. Beefier one made no difference though.
Some googling suggested system file corruption, ran System File Checker and there were indeed some corrupted files,... Read more

A:Saving file to external USB requires hard reboot & corrupts every time

If it helps anyone who gets here via google:

It turned out the issue was strongly linked to the drive being exFAT. A USB stick I formatted to exFAT also had the same issues. My conclusion was that it was likely a bug in the latest Visual Studio. Have reformatted my drives to NTFS and all is well.

I've learned now heavily about the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard. I've also learned about the USMT, which I've not yet used in practice, but learned the basics of in the .inf version. Studying that was how I was able to learn this deep into the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard. Basically, the two have similar, but not exactly the same configuration.

Now here I'll post the configuration for the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard. I took what I found already there, and was adding features to it. I didn't create this from scratch, and it would've been silly to, as it's a configuration file.

My issue is that whenever I'm saving settings, anytime I tell it to save something from HKEY_CURRENT_USER in the registry, it does not work. I was needing to know if anyone knows why, so I can correct it please.

This is the oddest thing I've every seen.  No registry changes are persistent through a reboot.  Just for testing purposes I have created test values under all 5 of the registry hives.  I create a test string value called test, close and reopen
regedit to make sure the values are still there, and they are.  Then I reboot boot the system.  After a reboot, however, the string values I created are no longer there in 3 of the 5 Hives.  The values stay persistent in "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT,
I have validated that the SYSTEM account has full control to the "c:\windows\system32\config" directory and files contained there in, however, even after a reboot, the files do not have an updated timestamp.  It's like the current running config is
not being written to the Harddrive on shutdown.  The ntuser.dat file in the user profile is showing an updated Modified timestamp, so user settings are being written, but not the system settings.
OS:  Windows Vista Home Premium (x64) SP2

A:Registry changes are not persistent through a reboot

I just ran across this same issue in Vista. My thinking is that the /minint option is being set by the boot config somehow rather than in the controlset in the registry (I think the CurrentControlSet is updated at boot time with the selected options from
the boot config).
What finally fixed it for me was to boot into the the recovery console, then delete and recreate the BCD:
bcdedit /export C:\BCD_Backup
cd boot
attrib bcd -s -h -r
ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old
bootrec /RebuildBcd

A:Registry Droped After Reboot

Regretably hard drive corruption and the files on it, is sadly a fact of life.
Obviously backups are handy here, even just exporting the whole registry to another partition or drive allows you to import it, if and when things go wrong.

If you have system restore turned on for that volume you could reinstate things to how they were, when things worked properly.

My in-laws gave me their Acer Aspire v5 with Windows 10 to use.  After receiving the laptop, I went ahead and started cleaning it up.  I thought I had it cleaned up pretty well until I discovered an issue.  The issue is that I cannot log into a Standard User account.  When attempting to do so, it immediately signs me back out.  Other administrator accounts on the laptop sign in just fine.  If I change the Standard account to an administrator account, I can then log into the account.
I found that this registry key value is affecting the login behavior.
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogin\Userinit
Value "C:\windows\system32\userinit.exe, c:\program files\soluto\soluto.exe /userinit"
If I change the vaule to "C:\windows\system32\userinit.exe," I am then able to log into the standard user account.  However, when I restart the laptop, the value changes back to the original and thus I cannot log into the standard account.
There must be something I am missing.

Hi everyone!
It has been a while since I've posted to this amazing community. If anyone has any suggestions regarding my problem, I would greatly appreciate some help (hoping not to take my comp to the shop :s ).

Here's the deal:

- I run XP on my 3 month year old home-build pc.
- Everything was running fine last night. I shut it down before I went to bed.
- Today I went back on and it booted but froze at my desktop. I could not right click, ctrl alt del, open the start menu, access icons, etc.
- I rebooted a few times but nothing fixed the problem.
- I rebooted in safe mode, seems to be okay...
- Now whenever I reboot I get the following error: "One of the files containing the system's registry data had to be recovered by use of a log or alternate copy. the recovery was successful."
- After about 30 seconds of seeing this error, the computer reboots itself-- rinse, wash, repeat.

Registry errors scare the living bejesus out of me... so, any thoughts before I send this badboy into the shop?

Hi, writing on behalf of a friend whose computer won't boot into Windows. When you try to it has a BSOD and says that the registry is corrupt (photo below). From the boot menu I've tried every option, Last Known Good Configuration, Safe Mode (all variants) and Load Windows Normally. No matter which option is selected the same BSOD appears and the computer reboots. I have also tried booting from the Windows XP install disc, but even there the same BSOD comes up and the computer reboots. It loads all the drivers, but before it gets to the actual recovery console the BSOD appears.

He has Windows XP SP3, has not installed any new hardware or software recently and hasn't updated any drivers himself. Automatic updates were on, so that's all I can think of as the culprit for why this error has shown itself, otherwise there haven't been any recent changes that could explain this. The system has 4gb RAM and the hard drive is 500gb. I can get the specifics if need be, but it doesn't present like a hardware issue.

The internet tells me at this point his only real option is to buy a new hard drive, but I wanted to see if there were any solutions out there that I haven't been able to find.

Here's the photo of the BSOD:

I am not an expert. At least once a month I use Disk Cleanup and delete (a) all but the latest restore point if all seems well and (b) the table of items that can be deleted that appears on first run of Disk Cleanup. I did this on Sunday 23 March and, when turning the computer OFF, saw that adjustments were being to the registry. Nothing like that happened when I turned the machine back ON.

I now discover that I can no longer add attachments to my emails using the dialogue box. I can add attachments via drag and drop. The email system (whether using IE11 or Google Chrome) just freezes when the dialogue box attempts to open and I have to shut down the browser(s) and re-open.

I still had the latest automatic restore point dated 21st March and ran that but it made no difference. I have been through sfc /scannow and it said some files couldn't be adjusted. I have the results of the scan and I have opened the file but do not understand the results. I get no error codes but I have downloaded (but not run) System update readiness tool. In safe mode I have also checked for booting problems but all seems clear.

I have McAfee Security software and I also run Hitman occasionally but my machine is said to be clear.

I may be wrong but it seems to me that 'something' went into a restore point when my last batch of Windows Updates were installed earlier in March. That 'something' got activated when I deleted the earlier restore points.

Does anybody have any bright ideas as to what ha... Read more

I know we're not supposed to bump the topic, I just thought of a few extra bits of information I forgot to add originally that might be helpful.

1. I don't know what type of infection is going on. I saw the comment saying I should say the type of infection but I never got an indication of what that is.

2. When I Ctrl-Alt-Del I'm told that the task manager rights were removed by the administrator.

I'll be running home over the lunch hour to run a sysclean on the box hoping to weed out any virus' while in safe mode.

Sorry for the second post, just thought the more information for you guys the better. Thanks again, I appreciate the great service ya'll provide for those of us that don't have a clue

I have a Windows 7 32-bit workstation in a workgroup. For the past few weeks, our vulnerability management scanner has not been able to scan this particular machine. I added the registry value of LocalAccountTokenFilter to disable remote UAC to be able to
scan. I am able to manually scan after I make the change but if the machine reboots, or if I log out after making that change, everything reverts back to default.
This happens when I make any Local Security Policy change as well. If I make any changes to the UAC options, they are completely undone after I logoff my session or reboot. Has anyone seen this problem, and know a fix for it? Any help will be so appreciated!

Just purchased a new computer with the win 7 installed. I believe that this is the bottom version of the OS.
I read that you can increase the capability of the factory version by purchasing a "software key" that improves the OS.
My question is, how much does this cost ,and what other features come with that modification, and is it worth it for someone like me that basically spends most of my computer time on-line read blogs and news.

Hi there,

So, i own a pc, a laptop and an xbox 360 and they are all connected to my home network via a router. now, when i have all three of these running at the same time it can cause a great deal of annoyance and confusion when we are all trying to compete for the most amount of bandwidth,

For example, my brother will be playing halo 2 and have msn open and i will be trying to surf the net on my laptop. now my brother will be complaing that he is not getting "host" and spends some of his games in red bar and my internet pages take a few minutes to load.

so i was wondering if there are any programs or freeware out there that i can go and buy so that i can modify it so that i can tell my router to give my xbox (lets say....) 60 percent of my bandwidth while splitting the other 40% between the two computers and then when the xbox is off it diverts the bandwidth to where it is needed most

If there is anything out there that can help me please post a name and/or link and it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You

Hi, all. I'm trying to fix my sister's laptop. The laptop is a Dell Inspiron 1501 running Windows Vista and is stuck in a reboot loop. Windows repair doesn't work and restarts itself, as does all of the other options in F8. When I try to boot from the CD-ROM (Vista recovery disk), it starts the loop over again. The only change I can seem to get is a STOP message when I try to start debugging mode. The stop message is as follows:QUOTESTOP: c0000218 {Registry File Failure}The registry cannot load the hive (file):\SystemRoot\System32\Config\SOFTWAREor its log or alternate.It is corrupt, absent, or not writable.Collecting data for crash dump ...Initializing disk for crash dump ...Beginning dump of physical memory.Dumping physical memory to disk:Any help would be appreciated! She needs her PC for school and I'll be damned if the repair shop rips her off again.C

with it continuing to reboot i reckon it could be memory related!!!try taking out one stick and see if it works then.

For the past week, my Windows 10 phone (Nokia Lumia Icon) allows me to take a few pictures, then gets stuck "Saving". I can return to the home screen, do anything else, but if I return to the camera (hours or days later) it still
says "Saving". This reminds me of shooting rapidly with a different camera and filling the buffer, so I have to wait until it's clear. In this case, it never clears. I don't think I'm taking many pictures...as I've taken fare more in a shorter time
in the past.

Is there something I can do to fix the issue without rebooting each time?

My phone has over 7GB of storage available. I can switch to video mode, but it still has the camera overlay with that message, so I cannot record video. The phone does allow me to capture a screen shot with the active camera image...but that still shows
the rule of thirds grid and all icons and the "Saving" text.

Hi all, I've been hard at work in modifiying my watercooling unit, I know it is not such a good product, but after modifications it is amazing. Soon I will post some pictures if anyone is interested. Here is a list of what I've done:

1. Drained the system
2. Took it apart
3. Took out all stock fans, replaced with Antec Led Fans
4. Took out the restrictive stock tubing, replaced with Tygon 3/8
5. Ran leak test for 3 hours, at the beginning there was one leak, which I fixed with some tightening of c-clamp.
6. Modified front panel, placed another grill, as well as the back panel
7. Modified knob lightning

After all this, when I replaced the tubing, I immediately noticed that the flow meter was spinning much faster, and this effectively reduced my temperatures about 2-3 Celsius at load. Replacing the fans, with better airflow and quieter fans also brought the temps down 1-2 Celsius, also the use of Danger Den MCT-5 Coolant brought my temperatures down 2-3 Celsius as well.
In the end, I used to get a load temp of about 44 Celsius, now I only get about 37-38 Celsius. Quite pleased with the project and acheivement. If you guys want pictures, or illustrations of how I did this, just ask. I will post them later.
