Loosing data (MB battery??)

hey all, after turning on my system i have realized that my taskbar has gone, and some games wont work (have reinstalled but after computer is off for a while it wont work again) some of my programes thinks they have just been installed (as they have lost all settings) even tho they have been installed for ages. my u torrent wont stay installed, have to reinstall it every time. might this be my mobo battery or more of a issue, any help much appreciated???

  1. It sounds like it may be your harddrive.
  2. It's not your mobo battery....It is most likely something with you installation.
    Have you formatted and re-installed windows? I've seen the lost taskbar before on a customers pc...it had tons of viruses on it !!!!
    How old is the hard drive?
  3. may have found a solution, missing a reg key call "nosavesettings" and set the value, seemed to have worked, hopefully i dont jinx it.... cheers for the help.
