Subject description: Puppy ver 5.2.5 on USB stick
 

I have the program installed on a 1GB USB stick running on a Windows 7 OS Dell computer. Installation went fine however my personal settings are not saved even when I elect to have them saved, i.e. every time I select e-mail I am asked to set up a new account. Every time I select browser I have to download one even though I had set one as a default.

How did you set up the flash drive - using Puppy or some other program like Unetbootin?

Look on the flash drive and find the file syslinux.cfg. Post its contents here.

also good idea to make a save file before loading any new programs.

Delete the "pfix=ram" from the last line of the syslinux.cfg file.

Deleting the pfix=ram did the trick.
Thanks, much.
