Long time lurker around the forums but I have something I have never seen or dealt with before and I do repairs daily but I need help on this one guys! Today I was working on a vista machine and did a virus removal which went fine. After the restart I noticed the profile was corrupted. I couldn't access documents, control panel, etc it gave an access denied. I then went ahead and logged on to one of the other profiles on the pc and it work perfectly. So I created a new user profile and transferred all the documents and files over to the new one. After the restart I log on to the new one and everything was fine, programs worked, files were there, everything was good or so I thought. I then went and shut down the pc and started it back up, logged on and it took literally 10+ minutes to load. After it loaded it had no icons on the desktop, all the files in the documents folder were gone, pictures, music etc. All the programs are still installed, but no files. What is going on with this machine? Just another reason I f*****g hate Vista.
Oh and I already ran chkdsk, sfc, and it's clean from any infections I believe
Thanks for any help or advice.
