It used to work before. But one day I did a fresh installation of Windows 2000 and all of a sudden it never works anymore. Everytime I change the value in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop, it resets back to 400 after a reboot. I've tried another fresh installation but it still doesn't work. Anyone else have this problem and/or know how to fix it?

Unfortunately not, since I'm not using and have never installed TweakUI. I'm changing it manually in the registry. Thanks anyway, though.

Nevermind, I figured it out. Incase anyone else has the same problem, it seems you have to edit the entry using Regedt32.exe rather than the usual Regedit.exe for some reason.
