Windows 7: Win7 can't remember window size of apps after update

Win7 can't remember window size of apps after update

After I did an update of nVidia 9600 gt driver in 'Windows Update', no longer is the window size of ANY applications that were open at the time of the update remembered (after I resize them, then close them then reopen them).

It didn't affect all apps - Firefox was fine, but Internet Explorer, all MS Office apps, Corel PhotoPaint, etc can no longer remember the size I made their windows.

It didn't help to put the old driver back - in fact it made it worse, as by then I had even more apps open, and now none of those can't remember the window size either.

There must be some place in the registry where a change got made for each of these programs that can be fixed?

Thanks for your help.

Hello Moonslice, Welcome to SF,

I guess the best thing to do would be to perform a System restore that should take care of the problem.

Good Luck,

Thank you for helping me.

I tried a system restore, but it failed. That seems to happen a lot on my PC. it said it could be related to my antivirus, but I disabled all the individual items on Norton Internet Security. I even went to Services, but there was only one norton service and it wouldn't allow me to disable that.
