    I have used this method to restore user settings on a clean istall of Win Xp (which I have had to do more often than I would like).

    Change folder options to show hidden files.
    Goto C(?):\Documents and Settings\(Your User Name)
    Copy ALL of the Files and Folders
    Delete your problematic account
    Reboot
    Create your new account
    Copy all of your old folders into the new user directory
    Everything Should Be as you want. If you want to test it first, create a new account and copy all of your settings there.

    Good Luck!
