    Hello, one of the user profiles in Windows XP Pro has disappeared. I cannot recover the files because the folder in Documents and Settings has disappeared too. I am running a virus scan now. Any help in how this could have happened?

    That's not the problem, it's only 1 user account, the first one on the list, and I can't find any trace of it anymore.

    Hi there,
    I've never had a user a/c dissapear on me, I'll keep searching around, it sounds a bit bizzar.
    I'd love to know how such a thing might happen.

    Do ofcourse wait for other posts:)
