Default Some Prime95 settings lost

I had an "unexpected shutdown" when I manually turned off my Windows 7 machine last night. When I rebooted this morning I received the above message. I had been running a primality test on one of my 4 cores. Prime95 restarted and reserved 3 more exponents and started testing them along with the one that was in progress. Also the affinity setting has been forgotten. Is this a known behavior when windows has a problem? I have had one other "unexpected shutdown" in the recent past but no problem with Prime95 settings.

I'm not sure if this is related, but I've had my PrimeNet username randomly disappear from Prime95.
