Here is the deal: I did an update awhile back and a few days later noticed my calculator was gone. I thought maybe I accidentally deleted the shortcut, but thats not the case. Then I noticed my standard games were gone too. I thought maybe I accidentally removed them when I sent copies to my sisters computer, so I didn't give it much more thought. ( I never play the games anyway)
But the other day I decided to do a clean install. I removed the HD and did a wipe and then reformatted. Did a clean install and after the intall I was checking things out, reminiscing the the "old" XP (before the SP's and all the updates came out).
I noticed that I had my games, my calculator.. all that.
So then I went through the time consuming ordeal of updating. So now, after completeing all of the updates for XP, I just noticed my games are gone, my calculator is gone and mspaint... gone. They are not in the system32 folder. They don't exist on my computer at all.
So I am thinking, ok.. there has to be a bug in one of the last updates.
Anyone else having, or heard, of a problem like this recently?
