More computer hijinks

Post by ed »

So this am I found that some programs would not run. Things like word and excel aslo the open office versions.

I restarted. Windows updated. Every folder I had on my desktop vanished. Gone.

Don't know what else vanished but WTF?

Every time Windows updated something happened.

Anyone? Did you all get deleted? Am I now alone?

:cry:

Also all stored links in both firefox and chrome
