    Do you have a restore point that predates the problem.

    If my Anti Virus program is running, restore fails, so I turn it off first.

    On my setup, I have to turn it off before restoring (not when creating).

    Desktop icons or explorer icons ?

    desktop in vista or win 7-right click desktop,then left clik personalize,display

    explorer icons-open explorer window-select view (set icon layout & or size)then close it-now go to tools-folder options-hit button that says "apply to all folders"

    i think there is something wrong with windows 7 because what it is doing, when i select the dektop icons to a small size, they come to small. but when i reboot the icons appears to be on medium size again.
    its like its not saving, i can't find any solution to this problem.

    and also when i open an icon sya i open a games icon, and the games are in a list view. i put them in a tile view for example, when i close the window , and open it again they won't stay in tile view, they become list view again.

    I don't have anything for the icons resizing, but I did have the problem of folder setting e.g 'details' reverting to 'list'.

    If you right click on a folder > properties > customize, there is a drop down list of the various types of folders.
    Most of mine are 'general' so customizing it using the tutorial means that any 'general' folder keeps the new settings permanently.

    i was thinking of making another account and delete this one i have, how to make a new account
    exactly like the one i have now.

    because when i go to administrator account and make the view settings to small and reboot it keep it that way with no problems

    thats why maybe i will do another account

    though i would like to know why this happened, is it a windows 7 bug?
