Ok i have a problem, not a biggie but its really annoying me! .... basically the my computer window has stopped grouping my HDD's, rom's & floppy! every time i set it back to grouped and close the window then go back the icons are un-grouped! ... how can i save icons to be grouped?

grouped(i want it saving like this)

Everytime i close the window the icons become un-grouped again like below!(this is annoying)

For some reason I just had to add "type" to the "Group by" list manually. The setting does stick for me though. When I set it to group by type and close the window, its still grouped when I open it back up.

this has been a problem since early day of XP, they supposedly "fixed" it in SP1

problem is that computer will not keep certain folder settings. Sometimes two folders get attached in registry and when you change options in one folder, it affects other folder.

when i mean "fixed" that really is not fixed, I had it happen in Vista Sp1 as well.

here is a bit longer thread about the topic

here is my solution

after wipe that info, it will take about 2 reboots for it to settle. remember that wipes all folder settings.

I chose to DO RESET BY A DOWNLOAD way, i ran the registry key i downloaded, reebooted and set the window back how i like it! saved & worked fine! ... ill keep this registykey n a winrar for the future! :)
