Yo mmoore

how much space have you left on the hard drive? sometimes it can be something as simple as this, swap space and all that crap can be a bit of a bugger.

Check your temp folder it may have a ton of Maya disk cache stuff in there causing it to defer to the default settings.

Make sure your "my documents" folder is not a top level drive ( like D: ). For instance, I use a hard drive exclusively for my documents, and in order to make Maya save preferences, I had to move my documents to a sub folder.
