Google resets personal settings

I want to change several things in Googles settings but it always gets back to default. Is this a problem with Google or Windows? I guess it's something with Windows since it was the same thing with Vista and I have not found any info about any bug about this with Google. Is it some cockie that's get deleted for some reason? Is it stored in a coockie at all? Is it NOD32 that deletes it without telling me?
Starting to get realy annoyed about this now.

So al you Gurus, please help!

Hello, Welcome to the Forums!
Are you referring to Google Chrome?

Thanks for the welcome!
No I'm refering to standard Google search engine in conjunction with IE 8.

Every settings like how many results I want, what language I want the searches to be done in, that I want result to be open in a new window (or in this case tab). Everything of that gets reset do default. It seemes like it resets everytime I stat google almost. I havent tested but since it is almost always resetet I asume that.

Have you checked in your Internet Options to see if it is set to allow cookies, or delete them automatically?

Do any other sites (such as SevenForums) remember you, if you check the Remember Me box?
If not, are you using any programs (such as CCleaner) to automatically clean the computer?

Those are actually set on Googles servers I believe BUT in order to know who you are the standard practice is to place a cookie in your coockies cache to identify you.

If you have accept cookies turned off or you frequently wipe your coockies/cache files then that'll remove any personalization from a lot of web sits.

Cookies are "evil" when used for evil but they do have an actual working purpose and that kind of thing is exactly what they were meant for
