My personal settings are not being restored at startup or restart. I have
made no changes to settings in several weeks...this appears to have started
for no apparent reason.

Has anyone else experienced this?

More about : personal settings restored

It might be helpful for me to mention that, upon startup, my desktop and
settings are that of a new XP installation...even asks if I want a tour of
XP, every time.

ALL personal settings...wallpaper, folder options, desktop icons, quickstart
options, network connections...are reverted back to initial install defaults.

My user name and password are preserved, however.
