Is there any way to...
Every once in a while I clean my PC from top to bottom, data and program wise, registry, and it includes wiping out all cookies and browser history.
That cleaning includes zapping all logins and passwords stored by the browser, I have a USB key where I store everything I need again.
When I login again to dpreview, I also need to reset the type of display I want.
Once I've done all that, the contents of dpreview returns to normal with all the flags for read/not read, etc.
Maybe your concern comes from not doing things in the ideal order ?
