View Full Version : Windows 8.1 settings changing by themselves

I did a clean install of Windows 8.1 on my G75VW a week ago (I had Windows 7 before) and everything was fine and dandy until I noticed something bizarre. After a few restarts, some control panel settings which I have altered change back to their default values. Three settings that do this are Windows Firewall (I turned it off for both private and public networks, but it turns itself on for private networks), Advanced Sharing Settings (I turned off network discovery and file and printer sharing, but both turn themselves on), and the monitor refresh rate (I set it to 67hz, but it goes back to 60hz by itself). What the hell is causing this? I have never seen anything like it.
