Upon rebooting, my computer went into "preparing your desktop" and failed, and made a temporary profile. I system restored to get back
to my original settings.
Now, my taskbar is empty for quick launch, and changing settings in the file explorer does not save anything.
Additionally, all my system fonts seem to be different, they don't look smooth any more. No setting changes I attempt in explorer save at all.
I found a guide about changing some settings under HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Explorer/ (some folder) but the only folder that exists there is SessionInfo.
So I'm assuming something killed part of my registry between the crash and restoration, but I don't think manually recreating folders and files when I'm not sure what I'm doing is the best plan. Does anyone have some insight on this?
Picture of the prime issue, if it wasn't clear.
