I left my computer last night after reading my mail. I did nothing else at all and haven't for days now due to university work. This afternoon i switched on and the whole C drive was completely different. it didn't recognise my profile, my screen saver was changed, my documents and pictures empty, my outlook mail gone and other stuff i forgotten now as i was so puzzled. I couldn't figure it out at all with no idea why it happened. I think the gremlins were in while i slept.
I had to do a system restore, which thankfully worked.
Anyone any ideas why this happened? I am running vista Explorer 8 as i cannot get 9 because the service pack i have no longer exists and it won't update/download, tried many times and even asked on here too without sucess.
