I don't know if this falls under an OS problem or a hardware problem so, I'll just post it here 'cause I think it's OS since it affects various hardware. Not sure if they are considered "system changes" but, I cannot alter or change alot of settings. I've posted some individual problem here before with no solutions. So, here's the collective list of main problems. -Can't change modem properties(yeah, still on dialup). When I open my modem properties and click settings I have the option "Quick Connect". It is checked by default but, when i uncheck it, close and reopen the window, it is checked again. Also, click on "Modem on Hold" tab I can choose to enable or disable. It is enabled by deafult and just like Quick Connect when I disable it, close and reopen the window it is enabled again. -Can't overclock my video card. I've posted this problem in "The Offical OC'ing Thread". If you've read there you know the details. I've tried many programs with no help. When I set the MHz I want close and reopen the window, the speeds are back to default. -Can't change default browser. I open "Set Program Access and Defaults" in Add/Remove Programs and change my default browser to FireFox from "Use my current Web browser", but when I close and reopen the window it is back to "Use my current Web browser". There are a few others but, those are the most annoying! Plus, I don't want to make this post huge and unbearable to read. I appreciate any help or info.
