I want to have my recycle bin in "Details" view, sorted by date descending. I can set it fine but then 15-30 mins later when I open the recycle bin again, it has gone back to the regular, alphabetic list view. This automatic change of view doesn't happen for a little while since I can change the view, close the recycle bin, open it again and see that all is apparently well. I then leave it alone but some time later (hour+) when I open the recycle bin again, the view has reset again.
I am using XpSP3, I am the machine admin, I have run avira antivir and spybot with no success. Not sure if this is related, but I can't change my DEP (data execution prevention) settings either. I can open the DEP window (system > advanced > performance settings > DEP) and change things on it, but when I re-open it immediately, none of the changes have been saved/retained. The DEP program exceptions list just goes back to how it was, ignoring all my changes.
Thank you for trying to help.
