Clicked ok, then the screen behind it... typical windows classic log on screen with Administrator in the account name line. I hit enter since I don't use a password there and BEEP it does it again.
I entered my user name which is Christa but it's also the Computer Administrator account (same one). Hit enter and it lets me in.
Starts up and now it looks like I just started with a fresh install of xp or something. I have 4 icons on my screen (usually like 12 or so;-) I still have my wireless showing connected, so i hit your site and start searching for answers. Explorer even acts like it's all new, you know like asking me if i want to save passwords, set my home page etc...
Now I'm searching for Outlook and my office programs, Click on Outlook and it's starts seaching for a disk. I have it but don't wanna have to install it again, I want my mail that is in there. (I need it and the files)
I go to the C drive and there is a folder titled MOM that seems to have all of my stuff on it. Previously the admin account showed up with Christa / Administrator / Mom as the account name. But in the folders now it just shows MOM.
Per reading others post on this site, I try to create a new account. Well I try MOM for the name, and it tells me that's already a user account. But is't not in the user accounts.
I read something about going into safe mode and moving files over. I'm just afraid to reboot for fear of loosing all the stuff that is now in the MOM folder.
I could use a little more direction here besides what I already read. My circiumstances seem a little different. And if it's telling me that it's already a user account, how do i access it if it's doesnt show up when logging on even as admin.?
Thank you for any assistance.
