A very strange thing happened. I ran SP3 update this weekend and while I was away from the computer, Windows installed a second update and automatically restarted the PC. I have no idea what the second update was, but I'm suspicious that it caused a problem. The account I used to run the update is fine and the second user's account still exists, but all his data is wiped out. Documents, emails, settings--all gone. I back up regularly, so only a few very recent files will be lost. Has anyone else encountered this? At this point, I'm annoyed, but all can be recovered...I'm mostly curious. If anyone has any feedback, I'd appreciate it.
