I recently downloaded the 60 day free trial of Microsoft office, when trying to install it the computer told me I didn't have admin. rights. Following the advice of bleepinncomputer, I created another user account and gave that user admin. rights (which worked btw) Anyway, later I was told having multiple accounts slows down the computer and plus it kept asking which account I wanted to use and my boyfriend who only gets on to use Ebay would have prob. been confused by this so I went to delete one of the accounts. I deleted the wrong account (the one I've been using since I got the computer) and now everything seems messed up.
I don't think the computer is saving any of my settings. Before I messed up user accounts I didn't have this problem now my desktop icons are set up a certain way and everytime I restart the computer they are back to the old way, I can't set a "home" page because it doesn't go to the one I save, also when I get that little message "do you want windows to remember this password" and I click yes, once I restart the computer it doesn't.
Thank you to anyone who can help.

Hi cherylisfun You might try downloading and running this program http://www.undelete-plus.com/ It just might be able to help you rescue what you deleted if you haven't over written it yet.

Let me know if it works for you OK? It saved me once already, and best of all its free.
