Either your antivirus program or one of your other security programs
may be blocking writes to the registry. Changes can't be saved if
they can't be written to the registry.
Some of the security programs known to do this are:
IBM Access Connections
McAfee VirusScan and/or Antispyware
Spybot> Tools> IE Tweaks
Zone Alarm (free) 6.5, reported to be fixed in later versions.
