Hello people,
I have a really bad problem. It started off with dual monitors. When i switched off my computer and turned it back on all my icons were gone and desktop background was changed. Fist I thought that everything of my hard drive was deleted. But i was wrong. When i go to this file C:\Users\Sendi\Desktop all my icons and stuff are there. I know i can just copy the icons back, but also all my memory is lost. For example, my games can’t find any saved files even though there on my hard drive. It might be a virus but kaspersky and combofix didn’t find anything. None of them have picked up a virus. I have a 500gb hard drive, 4gb ram, 612mb video card. It seems like it has a problem with booting everything off my hard drive properly. Also when i go program files everything is there. When i look at my computer everything seems normal but nothing is running properly.
If anyone can help me i would really appreciate it. This is a tough one.

Thanks for reading guys hope you can help

It is most likely, some registry issue, but since you don't have any backup, or restore points, I'm not sure, if it's fixable.
You can try to create new account: http://www.lockergno...count-in-vista/, but I'm not sure, if it'll help.
