View settings won't hold
Vista's view settings seem to have a mind of it's own on my computer. I
usually use 'medium icons' but on some files I use 'details' Some days the
settings hold but on other days they change on their own. Occasionally I
need to reset 3-4 times in the same day. Does anyone know the registry
setting that controls this function?

Hi,

Here: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local
Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell

Some report that deleting the Bags and BagMRU subkeys, and then rebooting,
helps this issue.
