Windows 7: How do i Enable Action Center/Settings ?! (Complicated)

That sounds like the only option right now. You can put it in the Startup folder to be run every time the computer starts up. I have no idea why group policy would be reverting back after every reboot. Do you have any software on there that could be doing this, like Deep Freeze?

I've had a look at the registry file that Shawn provided, and this might be the cause of the problem. Some of the entries pertain to the HKLM branch, and these can only be modified from within an administrative account. At the same time, the other entries (the HKCU ones) will be restored to the values in the file, but only for the administrative account. Other accounts will not be restored, and they will use the values that they had previously.

I'm going to split the file, and you should merge the first one (the one pertaining to HKLM) from an administrative account and the second one (HKCU branch) from each account separately.

Files superceded. See my next post.

It seems that there is an issue with the HKCU file in that one entry cannot be written to the registry as a standard user. I have revised the files and moved the relevant entry to the HKLM file.

HKLM branch (merge first from an administrative account): Restore_Default_Windows-Error-Reporting_Policies_HKLM.reg

HKCU branch (merge into each account): Restore_Default_Windows-Error-Reporting_Policies_HKCU.reg

Can't believe it worked, seriously!
Did the same using default admin account and user admin profile...
options are visible after restart now..
Thanks Dwarf
