The problem with which I need assistance it this:

I use Windows XP Pro, Version 5.1 SP2. The difficulty began after

installation of SP2. Now, when I turn on the computer each morning,

the icons appear with Display Properties Settings at 800x600 pixels,

far too large to work with conventiently. Following prescribed

method, I re-set to 1024 x 768 pixels, the most convenient size.

Before installation of SP2, I had Settings re-set to 1024 x768 and it

held as it should.

The procedure I have to follow now on boot-up is to re-set each time

I turn the machine on. In the same manner, I must re-set Screen Save

each time I turn on the computer.

One solution would be never to turn the computer off, but I don't

consider that satisfactdory.

I have SBC DSL, and I turn it off each night as a safety precaution

against possible unauthorized entry into the system.

In summary, I did not have the problem before installation of Service

Pack 2.

Thank you for assistance.

I'd try re-setting the screen resolution, pressing OK, and immediatly use Start > Turn off computer > select Restart.
Theory being that you should force saving of system settings by doing a good restart.
