Windows 7: changing performance options doesn't save

changing performance options doesn't save

When i disable the "animate", "fade" and other features in the "performance options"(s. attachment), it works fine until i restart the PC. After reboot the "animate" etc. are checked again. this is the same with admin and user account. This PC has a fairly fresh install and i didn't do any crazy things.

Most of the items I uncheck stay unchecked. but these animate and fade ones (the most annoying since i want a snappy OS) always revert back.

any ideas how to resolve that? none of the Windows 7 PCs i use have that problem, only my new one.

I found out what the problem is and wanted to share the solution:
- it seems only the standard user accounts had this problem , the admin account would "save" the settings.
- I changed my "standards"accounts to admin accounts, adjusted the animation settings and reverted them back to "standard"accounts and they now keep the setting.

Some other hints I found while googling are (but i didn't actually follow those since I found above solution). Just in case above doesn't help someone:
- adjust registry (I looked, but it turned out the registry was set to not animate)
- restore (did, but didn't help)
- system repair (didn't do since one second before i did i found the above solution
