My first time here, I am used to searching the Internet to find the answer to my computer issues, and that is what has caused my problems! I have tried other forums but basically they were unable to help me.
So, I have a laptop that I use for work, and it had one of those annoying little things that when they set up my laptop the User Folder was named incorrectly. (My name is Gregg NOT Greg ))
I had the computer about 6 months without any issues, and decided just before Xmas to try to fix it. I was trying to follow this:
I did the simple rename that made no difference and eventually made the mistake of changing the Registry. I only ever changed one letter! What happened was the first time I tried the restore point worked perfectly. The second time (I did something slightly different, I don't remember what) the restore point wasn't, or didn't appear to work.
Anyway, what appeared to happen was all my programs etc worked perfectly in my Greg user - and all my documents e.g. Desktop found their way into my Gregg user. This wasn't a problem to save these - and I am currently using the old profile.
Using the computer over the last few weeks, has found a number of annoying little things that must have been caused by my tinkering:
In Outlook all of my address book has disappeared
Even though all my favorites appear to be untouched - this is very strange I cannot find the folder containing my Microsoft Edge favorites anywhere!
Again, very strangely - the audio, most of the time has developed a strange static noise when listening or using video.
So, what I would like to do is fix these issues, and also tidy up my Users - maybe even get to where I wanted to be in the first place. Of course, I tried to ask the IT at work, but as long as I can switch the thing on, they aren't interested.
I am happy to supply anything you need to help and I think am pretty good at following simple instructions!
Thanks in advance!
