    I've had this problem since yesterday and I'm trying to get it fixed. Also, this problem only affects the account that I use on this computer.

    I tried to save a document to my computer, but it comes back and says "Document not saved." This is also true with anything else I try to change on my computer. This all started yesterday. I shut down the computer one time, and when I turned it back on, I logged onto my account, but it just stayed on the blue screen on Windows XP saying "Loading your personal settings" or whatever it says, I don't know what exactly.

    So I unplugged the computer since it stayed on there. I boot the computer up again, and now most of my settings have gone back to default, and whenever I try to change a setting, it won't. For example, when I try to change settings in AIM (like change the color of my text or whatever in my preferences), they just go back to default. I shut the computer down, and restart it, and whatever little changes that have been saved revert to default as well. What could be the problem? What can I do to solve it? Does this mean that I might have to format the hard drive? Also, I scanned for viruses and deleted them, but that didn't help.
