    Found an answer that worked on another forum. I will copy paste the answer for you all. This solution worked for me, my mouse settings now hold after restarting.

    *****

    I think I found a fix! After mucking around in the registry, trying all sorts of stuff, moving keys around, with some PARTIAL success but not totally satisfactory... something caught my eye...
    Open up regedit.exe
    Navigate to:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Synaptics\SynTP\Install
    Note this is LOCAL MACHINE, not CURRENT USER.
    Look for a key in that Install folder called DeleteUserSettingsOnUpgrade
    Double click and change the value to 0
    Now go back to the Synaptics control panel, set everything how you like, and reboot. See if it holds. It is holding on mine, still have to test on another computer.
    So, this is a sign something weirder is going on behind the scenes, if the driver thinks it is "upgrading" after every reboot.... but anyway, if it works for now, good enough for me!

    This is definitely the answer!! Worked for me and the instructions are really clear.

    For the most part worked for me. I set my laptop with L hand orientation. Only hiccup with reboot the login screen where password is entered still R hand orientation but once login done is sticking with L hand setting. I do not suppose any way to make the login same? Guess just getting greedy!
    Thanks for the help guys.

    I noticed some people are still have some issues. This did not work for me at first, but I noticed a key in the same folder called EnhancementLaunchMode. After changing the value in this folder to zero it stopped changing my settings.

    Prior to this, I did uninstall the S/2 mouse driver, and installed the lenovo driver suggested by the person in the fourth comment in this thread. If you do this, be sure to install from dpinst.exe in the "WinWDF" file, and not the first "setup.exe" you see. That through me off at first.

    I hope this helps!

    For those who didn't find the key "DeleteUserSettingsOnUpgrade", I didn't find it either at first, and frankly I don't think it was there, but when I searched for it with regedit's "Find" function (starting at "SynTP") it appeared where it's supposed to be. After changing the value to 0, my touchpad settings have persisted through the first restart.
    Thanks to all who have helped solve this most annoying problem.

    As stated (I think) this formula works for Synaptics but NOT for the Elan Input Device. I'm wondering why it's such a chore for someone to touch on this instead of Synaptics? Or is it that all are indeed like myself, just plain not able to? :-)

    I had never heard of the Elan Input Device until reading your post. I guess a majority of laptops use Synaptics.
    My settings have stuck for a few reboots after using the above remedy (0 setting).

    I think you're not alone apparently. From the zero amount of responses or from little to nothing I can find on Google, it seems it's something that either no one has on their computer much, or it's an impossible fix.
