Desktop utilities, disk temperature threshold

I just added a rotating disk to a DH67CF-based system that previous had only an SSD.


The Intel Desktop utilities program imemdiately detected that this disk (apparently) reports its temperature, which is nice.  Though it called it "unknown" at first, but that can be edited.


The bad thing is that the threshold value for this is 0, so that any termperature at all is above threshold, producing an alert.


I can edit the threshold on the 'options' page which is fine for the remaining session, but the change does not stick across reboots (unlike the sensor name change to "Hard Disk 2 Temp" which has been preserved).  So as soon as I reboot, I get red warning signs in the system tray and pop-up messages.


Is there any way to get the threshold value permanently set to something more reasonable?  Any method will do: some magic 'save' button I overlooked, regedit, config file edit, etc.
