Hi all,

Got a problem with a PC. All was working fine then it had the blue screen of death and restarted itself. When it booted up again it was like a fresh Windows XP install. All my Documents and IE Favorites were moved into another directory and a new user had been set up.
My login name was Tiger. After the error it created a new one called Tiger.Tiger which it is now using. It still crashes every now and then too.
I've tried doing an scan for errors on my drives but both seem to be OK. In case it makes a difference I have a standard IDE drive and then 2 others RAIDed together as one.

Any suggestions is appriciated :o)
