I've been using Win.7 64bit on my PC since it was built for me 4 years ago with absolutely no problems at all with Win.7. Yesterday,i booted up my PC only to see that it had been logged on with the 'default profile' instead of my user profile, everything apart from a few desktop icons had vanished.
I clicked on the start button & found a listing that gave me a link to Firefox,my usual browser,& i eventually found a link to an item telling me how to edit the registry to re-set my user profile - the ''bak'' thingy !. I did it,& my PC's now back to normal.
My question is - Is there any specific thing that could change my user profile setting in the registry to make my PC log on with the default profile ?. Or is it a hit & miss afair, with many things possibly affecting the registry setting ?.
It seems very odd that a registry setting can change like that ???.
