Actually I can change them, but the next time I start my computer they are set back to defaults.

I prefer a custom 'Windows Classic Style' configuration and to have all Sound shut off, so I've set my video and sound options accordingly. When I cold restart my computer, the settings are back to the Default 'Windows XP style' with sound (beep and whistles) turned on.

Is it possible that Zone Alarm Security Suite is preventing this change as part of it's firewall activity?

If it is, then how to I over come it and make my video and sound setting permanent?

It may not be a Zone Alarm problem, but I have tried three general tech support forums and no one has any ideas what might be causing this. So, I thought I would try here.
