Windows 7: How do I save folder settings in windows 7?

How do I save folder settings in windows 7?


So here's my problem ever since I rebooted my laptop a few weeks ago most of the settings changed. My wallpaper was gone, my desktop icons were changed and missing etc... but I manged to change those little things back to normal even though some times when I restart my laptop the wallpaper goes back to plain black. The real problem I'm having is in Explorer windows, when I change the display "icon size" or "sort by" settings they go back to default once i open the folder again. For example in my "Music" folder I'll have them sorted out by artist then when I leave the "Music" folder it's no longer sorted by artist.

Any help please?

Not sure what would cause that besides hardware failing or corrupt user account ?
Most of that I believe is controlled by desktop management ?
