I have a keyboard from Logitech that has a F-Lock key that is required for the function keys to produce F1 through f12 instead of special functions for things like 'new' and 'reply'.

Each time I reboot, the setting defaults to off, is there a way to configure windows-7 perhaps through the registry to have the keyboard default to this setting on upon a reboot?

Yeah, the later ones have the F-lock functionality reversed by default so it's not so annoying.

If your keyboard is supported by it, may want to install the newest Logitech SetPoint and see if it lets you change it's behaviour.

Also, if you've got it hooked up via PS/2 you might be able to make use of this registry hack.
