    The solutions that can fix automatic resetting of settings to default problem on Windows 10 after every shutdown or restart are:

    1. Run SFC and DISM Scans
    2. Run Startup Repair
    3. Create a New User Account with Administrative Privileges
    4. Check if this happens in Clean Boot State
    5. Uninstall any Update or Program that you may have installed
    6. Run System Restore
    7. Repair Windows 10 using Installation Media or Media Creation Tool.

    Let’s deep dive into each method and see how they are done. Before you begin, you may want to Check for Updates and install them if they are available.

    1] Run SFC & DISM Scans

    SFC (System File Checker) and DISM (Deployment Image Servicing and Management) are two power tools on Windows 10 that can fix the majority of issues that occur on your computer. They use files from updates to replace any broken files that are causing you errors.

    They can fix almost every error that occurs on your PC. First, run SFC Scan and then run DISM Scan.

    You can find more detailed info and procedure on running SFC Scan in the below link.

    After running the SFC Scan, run DISM Scan. This will help repair a corrupted system image.

    After the scan processes are complete, restart your PC. Any errors that are causing your system settings to rest automatically might be fixed by now.

    2] Run Startup Repair


    Windows 10 comes with a great feature called Automatic Startup Repair. It will fix any Windows-related troubles and fixes them automatically when we run it.

    Use it and see. It should fix the automatic reset of settings after reboot. If the problem is still not solved, try the fixes below.

    3] Create a New User Account with Administrative Privileges


    Another possible reason for the error to occur in the first place is may be due to a corrupted user profile. To fix that, you need to create a new user account with administrative privileges. This will help you fix the error and use your PC normally.

    You can create a new user account with administrative privileges through Accounts in Settings.

    After creating the new user profile, check if the issue is resolved by restarting your PC.

    Alternatively, restart your PC 4 times in a row to remove a temporary profile problem – see if this helps.

    4] Check if this happens in Clean Boot State


    Clean Boot State is used to diagnose and troubleshoot advanced Windows problems. Ie helps in knowing if the problem on your PC is caused by errors on Windows or any other program you have installed. In Clean Boot State, only the essential programs and drivers run.

    Check if the settings reset automatically even in Clean Boot State. If not the error is caused by a program you have installed.

    5] Uninstall any Update or Program that you may have installed


    Windows settings might have been resetting to default due to any update or program you have installed last. Try to remember all the programs you have installed before the error occurred and uninstall them. It might solve the issue and make your PC behave normally without resetting the settings to default.

    6] Run System Restore


    System Restore is a very useful feature in Windows 10 that allows PC users to revert to an earlier point in time when the operating system was functioning properly without issues. Running it will fix the problem of automatic reset of settings to default after a reboot.

    This should fix your problem.

    7] Repair Windows 10 using Installation Media or Media Creation Tool


    This is the last method you can try to fix Windows 10 settings automatic reset after reboot.

    You can repair Windows 10 using Installation Media.

    These are the fixes that can fix the automatic reset to default settings. If you have any suggestions or doubts, please do comment below.

    Reseting monitor to default settings?

    Is it possibel to reset the monitor to default settings?

    My problem is that I accidently set the monitor to 100Hz, so it went black in windows. I can get into safe mode with no problems, but in normal mode the monitor stays black. Is it possible to set the Hz in safe mode? I can't access the NVIDIA control panel in safe mode, and the monitor properties say 'Use Defaults'.

    Monitor model is: Dell D1226H.


    Thanks

    Windows 10 Settings reset to default after reboot

    How to reset whole netsh? (Windows 7)

    Was wondering has the commands changed somehow since on Windows XP and on Windows Vista 'NETSH INT RESET ALL' cleaned entire netsh up from top to bottom.

    Now on Windows 7 this same command says no go and only way I can see it is by building .cmd/.bat which does something like:

    Code: netsh winsock reset all netsh int 6to4 reset all netsh int ipv4 reset all netsh int ipv6 reset all netsh int httpstunnel reset all netsh int isatap reset all netsh int portproxy reset all netsh int tcp reset all netsh int teredo reset all[/quote] now the king of the hill of bugs is this doesn't actually do even it's job even after reboot. values setup to are not reset to defaults. (I know I could add more entire list of entries there is, but looking for clean delete/wipe settings & default everything not to dump entire list of resets.)

    So, anyone got a plan B?
