I am running XP pro SP1 on my computer at home. It does not save things appropriately. For instance if I attempt to rename a folder it only stays renamed until I turn off my computer, after restarting it reverts to the old name.
Also in programs like winamp if I make a playlist, save it, close the program, and turn off my computer. the playlist is not stored in winamp as it should be; except some of the time, it does. The playlist file is correctly saved, so if I open the playlist everything is there that should be.
For example if I load my blues playlist and turn off/restart the computer, when open winamp again there is no playlist loaded. At some random point in time it does save the playlist, so everytime I open it the blues playlist is there. If I add a new CD to the playlist and save it, the next time I turn on the computer the new songs are not in playlist displayed, but if I load the blues playlist they are there. Except sometimes the songs are saved correctly. I have the same problem attempting to switch to my classical playlist. Open winamp, blues is there, remove blues, and classical, classical stays until I turn off the computer, then blues is back. Again except sometimes.
It seems as though my computer is not fully saving changes, new saves and deletions are handled correctly though.
Any suggestions/questions welcome.
I cannot update to SP2. My MOBO is an asus a8v and the mobo cannot handle SP2.
