Help... this happened again
I turned my computer on this morning and it said it was "preparing your desktop"
It NEVER says that. And it logs me into a temporary profile.
And JUST like last time, when I got to my desktop, some items are gone.
Last time this happened it was right after an update. I looked, and no updates happened within the last day or two. Definitely not when I shut down last night.
And last time this happened, I asked for help here and never figured out just what happened or if it was possible to get back whatever disappeared. I looked things up and I did not find much help on the internet anywhere.
I found someone suggesting doing a system restore. I was not even able to do that.
There's a part of me that thinks about reformatting my hdd but I have SOOOO many pictures and things I'd have to back up externally(which I know, I should do anyway) but that's so much work.... downloading and installing all sorts of programs, setting them up, getting things just the way I had them... so much work.
But more than that... that wont help me to figure out WHY this happened and if there's any way to figure out which items disappeared...
I hate when computers do things I can't figure out... unfortunately... that happens......
"computers don't make errors... what they do, they do on purpose."
feels that way sometimes.
Windows 7, fully updated, Avast AV fully updated. WOT, NoScript, and other security measures to prevent bad things from happening. Generally safe and well protected. I do not suspect malware, I suspect windows issues....... But, I will entertain any ideas at this point.
