    Personalization changes in Windows settings are all lost after a shutdown or restart


    Over the last few days, I've noticed than any and all personalization changes I've made in Window settings on my Windows 10 desktop PC with all current updates are undone and lost after a shutdown or restart. Has anyone else observed this?

    As an example, I set my screen saver as shown below:

    After a restart a screenshot shows:

    What's up with this?
