I can't seem to find my personal settings after my machine loads my account settings. As of Friday, they were all there from Favorites to Recent Docs etc. Even some files on my C:\ are missing. Should I run a system restore or does anyone have an other advice?

Thanks

then that means that you may need to go into safe mode / select the hidden administrator account and make your account an administrator one

or you may need to create a new account and then transfer your data & settings to the new account
