    Hi, I'm not sure what
    suddenly i shutdown my computer
    means- I hope you didn't just power it down.

    For settings to be saved, you need to shut it down properly- which means waiting for it to do certain things, including saving changes to disk.

    Also make sure you're not logged in as a temporary user, and your computer has not been set up with a program to always restore the OS to a standard state. (There used to be a couple of programs to do that e.g. for university or office use to protect against unwanted user changes, but I've not seen anything like that for a few years).

    If you are in a work environment and you log on to a Domain, it's possible the System Administrator has polices in place to ensure certain setting remain as they want them to be set.

    My Computer is NOT belong to a domain...it is a normal pc. I'm pretty sure about it that why i was trying to change some settings. i have a FULL permissions and administrator account.

    You must not shut down your computer by effectively pulling out the plug.

    You must shut it down by clicking shut down; if you choose do the former, it's unrealistic to expect volunteers to help you out.
