Android Question Lost the IDE settings

I'm not sure why this happened. Using version 9.5. I don't recall this ever happening before.

Opened B4A tonight and it's like all my settings were reset. The text, theme, etc were not as I had set, more like the default. The list of projects under the file tab of recent projects was empty. I hit the run button for one of my projects to make sure everything was okay and the 'Paths Configuration' window popped up with all empty fields.

The tabs in the window title bar for recent subs was still there though.

I've ran 2 scans tonight that didn't find any virus. I may have ran CCleaner this weekend but it's never affected B4A settings before.

Any ideas why this happened and/or what I can do to avoid this again?

Thanks in advance.

All these settings are saved in the ini file (C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Anywhere Software\Basic4android). I guess that the ini file was deleted for some reason.
This is not something that is expected to happen. You can backup this file.
Note that the file is rewritten when the IDE is closed so if you want to restore it, do it when the IDE is closed.
