losing my touchpad settings when i log back

i have a dell inspiron 5150, windows XP service pack 2,and synaptics touchpad software.
i like to enable the tap zones and use a lighter sensitivity on the mousepad. when i am logged off (for instance, when i'm away from the computer or when my girlfriend uses it) and then log back on, my tap zones are no longer enabled and the mousepad needs a tougher sensitivity. so i have to keep re-enabling the tap zones and dragging the sensitity bar towards lighter again and again. any suggestions to make the changes permanent? and yes, i do click on apply and then OK when i make these changes. moreover, my girlfriend's changes do not have to be re-enabled each time she logs in.
