I'm not sure of the answer, but how are you resetting? First if you are pressing the front panel reset switch, it isn't quite the same as switching off and on again, some of the motherboard boot actions are bypassed so that could be the problem. Secondly if you press the reset switch while Windows is running you are likely to end up with fragmented files all over the place and could even corrupt your Windows installation.
