Itīs my first post on here so hi everyone.
Iīve been scratching my head on a machine I have bought second hand and which runs Windows XP Home Edition (SP3).
The issue I have is that when I restart the machine, any file on the C drive, any program and any hardware I had installed before logging off just disappear.
Iīve tried looking into gpedit.msc, got it to run on the Home Edition, but that did not help me fix the problem. So there must be some sort of logon or logoff script in place but I donīt know where to look.
Any help would be welcome, I donīt want to format because the PC has an application installed for which I donīt have the install disc and since itīs a commercial piece of software for commercial use, getting a copy of that install disc is an issue.
