Windows 7: Folder's file sorting & view does not get saved

Folder's file sorting & view does not get saved

Hello, i've been having a annoying issue which messes my file sorting.

Thing's that when i change a folder view, from detailed view to large icons, i close it, open it again and it's on detailed just like before, this issue also affects when sorting the files, from Name to File Type, close folder, open and is like before, so the personalization isn't working...

Tried to reestablish the default settings with no fix at all.

Thanks!

A lot depends on how you want to view but in Windows Explorer [File Explorer on Win8] get the view you want then click on Tools, click on Folder Options, Click on View tab then click one of the 2 options under Folder views.

I know it, but the issue here is that none of the customization gets saved, time before it worked, but i don't know what's the deal now, is there any way to wipe the folders view and file organization database?
