I was just debugging something in IDA and it told me that the instruction pointer was pointing into the middle of an instruction, and asked if I would like to have it disassemble the middle of the instruction. In my particular case I never want to do that, so I checked "don't ask me again", but then I clicked yes accidentally, so now it's redefining my code and throwing away my carefully written comments every time I step. How do I reset this?
