  1. How do I prevent Windows changing all of my personalization's each time I get an update


    Every time there is a new update to Windows 2004, I have to go in and fix all of my personalization from what is on my taskbar, to all of my extensions on Chrome to my background pictures. This didn't happen before the Windows 2004 updates. This is wasting a lot of my time.

  2. Corrupted Personalization Settings and themes

    Hi Nkhondo,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    I suggest you check if the settings are disable in the registries of the PC.


    • Press
      Windows+R
      and type gpedit.msc in the run command.

    • In the window that appears, you can see the "Local Group Policy Editor" Window.

    • In this step I want to Prevent Changing Theme file. You click on User Configuration sub-category Administrative Template sub-category Control Panel sub-category Personalization and click on the "Prevent
      Changing Theme
      ".
    User Configuration<< Administrative Template<< Control Panel<< Personalization


    • In this step right-click on the "Prevent Changing Theme"and select the
      edit tab and click on the edit tab.

    • In this step, if you click on the
      Enabled Button then you cannot change the Theme. You click on the Disable Button then you can change the Theme. You click on The Enable Button for Disabling the changing Theme or Prevent Changing Theme.

    • In this step right-click on your Desktop and select the Personalize tab. In this tab you are unable to change the theme after disabling the changing of the theme or Prevent
      Changing Theme.

    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond How do I prevent Windows changing all of my personalization's each time I get an update :) Best regards.


    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.
