Windows 7: Windows reverts back to default setting

Windows reverts back to default setting

It seems that Windows has a mind of its own. There are two things I change on Windows but in a few days it goes back to the default settings. I do not like any system sound on my computer. It annoys me whenever I click on something I get the "beep". So I go into settings and change it to "NO Sound." It's OK for a couple of day but then it reverts back to where it was. I know that I can mute the sound on the volume control, but I shouldn't have to do that because there are times I want to listen to something on youtube or some such thing. Another thing is the mouse pointer, I like it to be black so that I can see it better. I go to the settings and change it to black but in a few days, it goes back to the way it was. This always happened on Windows 7 or Win8. Does anyone know of a way to correct this?

After you make your changes for the sound and your mouse pointer you need to save it as a theme, look at Option 2 of this tutorial should show you how to do it Theme - Change or Save

I just set it back the way I want it and saved it. It usually reverts back in a few days. So I'll wait until day 3 and then I'll let you know. If it reverts back it will do so by then.

So far-so good. It's been 24 hours now and it's sill set the way I want it. If it's still OK by Monday, it will mean the problem has been solved. I'll post back Monday and let you know.
