Every time I start Everything it starts as a new install.
Any thoughts?

If your settings are not being saved, please make sure "Store settings and data in %APPDATA%\Everything" is enabled.

To enable "Store settings and data in %APPDATA%\Everything":
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the General tab.
  • Check Store settings and data in %APPDATA%\Everything.
  • Click OK.

If you are seeing a "Everything requires administrative privileges to index NTFS volumes" message, please choose Install the Everything service and click OK.

If the Everything installer is running on startup:
  • From the Start menu, click Run
  • Type in the following and press ENTER:
  • Click the Startup tab.
  • Choose Open Task Manager if requested.
  • Uncheck Everything Setup or disable Everything Setup from running on startup.
  • Reinstall Everything.
