I am having lotsa trouble with logging into XP pro in that it/something seems to be copying user logins.
Basically what happens is this:
We login as a user and find that the screen looks like the very first login to xp...i.e what you would see as a first user...the hills and clouds wallpaper and a couple of default icons only.
When I go into the documents and settings folder i find the list of user folders.
The users that have had the above problem have been duplicated and have a folder with a .BASE extension
so I have admin and admin.BASE, music and music.BASE, plus TEMP and TEMP.BASE and TEMP.BASE.000
all have the folders inside as if they are a legitimate user.
Very frustrating to lose all the desktop shortcuts and icons, wallpaper etc
Feel free to ask anything about this as I may have not explained it to well.
Anyone with any suggestions would obviously be greatly appreciated
