XP misloaded

  Fred05 19:48 02 Feb 2007

I have a problem due to the way the XP software has been loaded on to my computer after windows 2000 was removed and XP put on.
What has happened that the C:\DOCS&SETT has been set up twice, so all the users (5 of us) are on twice, each time we save something it is saved twice.
If i attempt to remove a file or folder it removes from both C:\.
Is there a way of re identing one DOCS/SETT or does the data have to be removed, reformat, reload XP and reload data?

I would save all the data that you want and do a clean install otherwise things could get even more messy, you will find things run better because it is not having to do everything twice.
