Either someone messed with your PC, or some virus or malware is messing with it. I honestly don't know how you can recover your users settings. Perhaps System Restore? | Report abuse Anonymous April 15, 2009 12:13:43 PM Your Windows profile probably got corrupted and a new one was created. Check in C:\Documents and Settings for 2 folders that start with your Windows Username.
