computer acting funny.....

Ok guys, i'm somewhat computer savy, but this is totally weird. My computer will not save any settings at all. A few examples:

1. I installed adobe flash player plenty of times yet every website I go to says that I need to install Flash Player. For some reason it won't stay installed.

2. Itunes asks me if I want it to be the default audio player for all files. I put no, and "do not show again". What happens, next time I load it, it asks me again.

3. Firefox does the same thing about default browser.

4. Myspace messenger tells me to add new friends and invite them. If i do it, it says thanks, blah blah blah, but then next time i turn the computer on, it asks me to do it again. If I put "no, and never ask again" It will still ask me to do it next time I turn it on.

I don't get it. I have no virus, no spyware, or anything. Everything is up to date. Is there something wrong w/ my setup? I can boot another hard drive just fine. Is it my hard drive? Some windows settings?

Help me out guys!

Memo is frustrated.

Thanks!

Is your hard drive filled up with porn? Try deleting some of it to free up some drive space.

It's interesting that you are asking for computer help, but won't list what OS you are using?

A little more info would be helpful. Just at first glance you might have a problem with a corrupt profile in Firefox.

If you have Windows XP, you first try to simply rollback to a good restore point before these symptoms began. And ask yourself what have you installed or changed since that time.

You're right. My bad. My computer is an AMD 3200 w. 1/5gb ram, I have a 500gb SATA hd as my primary hd and a 250GB hd as my backup hd. It is running Windows XP Professional.

I think I noticed this problem when i "upgraded" hard drives. I did a clean install on a fresh hard drive. I never formatted my old hard drive so when I plug that in everything is fine.

I'm just wondering if it's some type of XP settings that are messed up or if my hard drive has issues or what. Thanks for your help
