A couple nights ago I turned off my computer for the night and the next morning when I restarted it, it walked me through set up like it was a new computer. When I went through the steps I found that I had lost everything, pictures, music etc..... when I looked on the desktop some of my old Icons where still there but when clicked on the info could not be found. PLEASE can anyone tell me why it would have done this???
Im not sure as to why that happened but if you can somehow remove the harddrive and have a usb sata/ide connector you might see if anything of importance can still be salvaged.Of course you have to have another working computer to use the connector with. If so i would put all of it on a cd/dvd so it isnt lost forever.Anything that cant afford to be lost should always be saved somewhere in case a computer does fail.

Why hasn't Windows XP Professional SP2 been upgraded to SP3 - which was released in May 2008?
Without SP3 and the post-SP3 high priority updates, you're running that computer in a very outdated and insecure condition.
