I was playing some of my computer games (in windowed mode) until i saw explorer reset itself. Im on windows ME, and i have everything in High color mode. Once explorer reset itself, everything looked like 256 colors. I couldnt open internet explorer, or click on the start menu. I decided to restart the computer. When it loaded up, my wallpaper was gone and it was replaced by the defult blue background. I still cant open internet explorer or go in the start menu. I restarted and went to safe mode, where i still couldnt click on start (but i could browse around "My computer"). I went straight to system restore but when i executed it the first time, nothing happened. I double clicked again and a blank window opened up. So im back on regular windows (not safe mode) and seeking help. All my settings for my other programs are resetted aswell. Does anyone know what happened or how i can fix it?

Very likely it failed to save your settings to the hard drive. Can you do a restore back now? To a date earlier than the problem. Otherwise you will just have to go through and reset everything to your liking.
