  1. Windows resetting personal settings upon restart


    Recently I've been having trouble with Windows resetting my personalized settings upon restarting my PC. Things like my wallpaper and app locations stay the same but it's been disabling my ClearType and some other personalization settings like displaying thumbnails and opening each folder in the same window in the file explorer.


    I went to Control Panel > System > About > Advanced system settings > Advanced > Performance and found that it was set to best performance for some reason and changed it back to letting Windows choose what's best for my computer which then went and changed most if not everything back. The problem now is that when I restart my PC this doesn't save and I have to go back and re-enable it. Is there anything I can do to make it so that my PC can save its performance options without resetting?

    :)

    LAN Connection settings reset after restart

    I just purchased a new laptop for school work. It is a Toshiba Satellite C55-A. I just opened it out of the box on Saturday night. For some reason, every time I restart the computer, the LAN Connection Settings in Internet Options automatically reset to use a proxy server. I have unchecked this and checked "automatically detect settings", but that always reverts after I restart. The only thing I can think of is that I configured my work email (Office 365) and a Windows popup said it would have to change security settings if I was going to use that type of email. Are there any other reasons this would happen and what would be the fix? I have installed a few school-based programs and would prefer not to have to do restore or recovery to save time on re-installing all that software.

    OS: Windows 8.1, updated with the most recent updates.
