Do you have a multi-monitor configuration with two or more monitors? Are your monitor settings lost after reboot, reverting back to a single monitor, making your completely reconfigure your settings? If so, the issue could stem from having Windows Live Mesh (A Microsoft LogMeIn Competitor that has since been discontinued) currently or previously installed on your machine. Here’s the fix:

There’s two ways to fix the issue.


Stop the Windows Live Mesh Service

  1. Go to Start > Run (type in the bar if you are in Windows Vista or 7) and enter “services.msc” then hit Enter.
  2. Scroll down to “Windows Live Mesh remote connections service” and right click it. Select Properties
  3. Under “Service Status”, press the Stop button.
  4. Under “Startup Type” Select “Disabled” and hit Apply.
  5. Reboot your computer, and your issue should be resolved.

Remove Windows Live Mesh

This one should be self-explanatory. Uninstall the program from your machine.

  1. Go to Start > Control Panel
  2. In Windows XP, go to Add/Remove Programs. In Windows 7, go to Programs and Features.
  3. Look for Program(s) that say “Windows Live Mesh” and Uninstall Them
  4. We’d also recommend uninstalling “Windows Live Essentials”
  5. Reboot your machine, and your issue should be resolved.

There you have it! A fix for if you lose your monitor settings after every reboot.
