Windows profile has reset - I have lost desktop icons and mapped network drives
Posted on 2014-02-02
I am using Vista Home Premium
The first thing that I notice is that my icons have disappeared from my desktop. Only 11 icons/shortcuts remain. The other thing is that my mapped network drives have gone. There is a folder on my desktop called "cache". I don't recall that being there.
I can no longer find Chrome in my start menu.
The folders in my user folder are empty. It is as if my profile has been replaced my the default Windows profile.
But...I still have my printers installed. My network settings are still as they were.
"Recent Items" is empty. My Start Menu has all reverted to the default.
I have tried a System Restore to two days ago. It has not changed anything.
What's going on?
