What happened to my computer settings; Explorer drastically changed
Posted on 2013-11-14
I can deal with the problems, but I am curious as to just what happened last night. I have Win 7.
When I got to my computer (home) this morning, the backgrounds were back at default, my taskbar icons are all gone, my Chrome settings are back to default, and, most of all, the Libraries are all emptied!
The files are available under Network, This Computer's name, Users, My Name, but they are no longer listed in the libraries section.
The Explorer shows Documents, Music, Pictures, and Videos, but all are empty folders!
What has happened?
I use Avira Internet Security and have the firewall, Realtime Protection, Mail Protection, and Web protection, with the updates made daily or multiple times per day.
Another question, should I pull everything back into the My Documents in the Libraries section? Will this duplicate them?
It was quite a shock when I looked this morning and there was nothing in the "My Documents" folder!
