Solved can't change boot timeout

I've tried everything and the boot timeout always reverts to 30 seconds.
I've used the internal boot menu, msconfig and easybcd to change it to 10 seconds but it always reverts back.
I even tried using the win 7 text menu with the same results. Currently I use the graphical menu because I like it with my touch screen.
any ideas on what would be causing it not to hold?
thanks

You need to run that 3 or more times to completely fix the problem, if not, you need to do a refresh or system restore as stated in the tutorial.

ok, i researched and fixed the sfc error. I had to change a reg entry on the programs directory to c:\ProgramFiles from %ProgramFiles%
That let sfc complete and it found errors and repaired them. The timeout appears to be holding at 5 seconds.
thanks for the suggestion
