My Computer Reset Itself on its own? Tags: Security Computers Windows XP Apps Last response: March 5, 2010 2:25 AM in Antivirus / Security / Privacy Share neoxblu March 5, 2010 1:25:39 AM Hello, I have a custom built gaming computer with Windows XP Pro 64bit, Today I started it up and clicked on my profile to log in and it gave me some pop up error saying profile cannot be located? It took a long time for it to log me in... After I logged in my Wallpaper had been changed to Windows Xp Pro 64 default but I still had all my software and games installed. But all my documents, pictues, music, apple apps were all deleted. Also when I opened internet explorer it acted like i just upgraded it, it said welcome to Internet Explorer 8 and I noticed that all my favorites, tabs and everything was all reset/ deleted. I still have most of my software and games but some things did disappear... I have no idea what caused this and im pretty sure it's not a virus because my AV (Bitdefender) does a scan every time im on the computer and it found nothing the last time I used my PC. Please help me, Thanks. More about : computer reset neoxblu March 5, 2010 2:03:41 AM I did a scan and it found a key logger so i removed it and restarted and now windows is back to normal... But my question is how could a key logger create a totally new profile to log in? N actuall y I kinda liked it all new cuz i got so much junk now lol... m 0 l saran008 a b 8 Security March 5, 2010 2:25:31 AM Keep always your AV/Antimalware update to stay away from these kind of problems! m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
