well, this isn't so much a problem, as much as it is an inconvenience:
my performance options, especially the virtual memory, keeps resetting itself. I frankly don't know why. I try to keep it at the recommended 9102 MB, but everytime I restart the computer, it keeps resetting to 6240 MB
I only noticed this recently, so I do not know how long it's been doing this.
srsly, my computer is weird.
