After something went wrong with my computer (files disappeared, Firefox stopped working, desktop icons disappeared, etc.) I'm seeing now that all installations are going into Windows/system32/config/system profile
instead of C/users/myname/appdata/roaming where it always has before.
The programs still work. I tried system restore but that came back with an error that it couldn't restore all files.
Short of reinstalling the operating system, anything else to try?
