pov demo changed config !

hi i just downloaded POV demo from hltv.org
and during watching i noticed everything is changed from crosshair to cl_righthand (or even mat_monitorgama ) !!!!!
so i thought its only during watching POV demo and when demo is finished everything will be back ,
gues what ? everything is changed !!! and my config screwed up ,
why pov demo changed my config ?
i read some website saying never watch POV demo unless read-only ,
watching POV demo will change player config ? doesnt make sense !

I had this happen to me once with a POV demo as well. I have no idea how a demo file changed my config, my crosshair changed colour and I think my key bindings as well but I'm not sure since it happened ages ago.

I always keep my config read only and adjust my settings in my userconfig. It's stupid that stuff like this can happen, but it happens all the time and I've learned after years of playing that this is just the best way.

A system restore would probably get it back.

You don't need to do a system restore. It's really incredible how nobody knows about this feature:

Right click your config file, properties, restore to a previous date.

It's probably one of the best features in Windows, I seriously have no idea why nobody uses it when they lose a file or it gets corrupted or something.

You can even recreate a file of the same extension and name, and it will be recognized as that file and you can still do the restore process.
