Settings of one (of two) XP users reset

  awest3 20:24 17 Mar 2008

Just a conundrum I suppose...I run XP SP2 on my dell desktop all updates etc on. I have two accounts mine and my wife just came to use her account and everything had been reset...just as if it was the first time of use...even a msg saying new hardware had been found for the router, background gone, screensaver, icons on the desktop...etc etc..

My account appears untouched !!

I used restore to get her settings back..I assume that mine were rest as well...looks ok.

Any ideas as to what caused this.?

The only new thing I've done (Saturday) was fit a new 500gb secondry ok
