May work for a while. My experience is that Vista begins screwing up
again after a while (mine is set at 20K) and starts resetting again or
remembers changes you make on the fly (when you don't want it to) and
refuses to remember the "un-changes" you make when you correct it. The
most annoying area that I find changing is File Open, Save, Import,
etc dialogs from programs where it will forget what view you want,
what columns you want, their widths, and what sort order you want.
To correct these and force Vista to remember your settings, you can
use an old trick: Choose the option (like File -> Open) that you want
to correct, set the options, then hold down the shift key while you
click the "X" in the corner to close the window. Vista should then
remember the settings for that dialog... at least for a while.
Important note: If you change directories in the dialog box before
doing the above "X" fix, Vista will NOT remember the settings. You
have to set it in the initial directory/folder display.
