This morning when I opened my account in Windows XP Home Edition SP3 I found that all my sttings had reverted to default as if I had opened a new account. My account prior to yesterday was on the Start button set at small icons with shortcuts to my most used programs etc. My folders were reset from Windows Classic to Windows XP and all my other personal settings had returned to default. All my folders etc are there and nothing is deleted or such just that all my personal; account settings had reverted to default settings. I checked in Event Viewer and found the following four entries at the time I entered my account. Can anyone tell me what they mean and how to avoid this happening again.

This may help explain what WebFldrs XP is and how to install or remove it. I would think that these events are evidence of an update. Unsure why your settings changed but I have seen things like that happen after updates from microsoft,

At any rate I wouldn't be overly concerned about WebFldrs XP as it seems to be a legitimate application in XP.
Does this look like an OldGrumpyBastard or what?
