Seems you have a corrupt user profile.

What I suggest is to create a new user login in Windows, login as that new login, restart your computer, backup all your files you want from the old profile from C:\Documents and Settings then delete the user profile from Windows, then login again and recover your files from the backup.

When things don't save under a profile after a restart, it means you are using a temporary profile and so the changes don't take effect. This is most likely the profile is corrupted and you'll have to backup your settings/files and recreate it.
