Losing User Info
For the third time today, when I reboot my computer, most of my user profile
is lost. Desktop preferences (icons, backgrounds, etc.) as well as app
specific info, such as Firefox preferences and add-ins, are lost. Everything
else seems okay.

Re: Losing User Info
Weird.

Are you loosing data files or just settings?

I'd make sure that you have the latest Vista logo Display Drivers installed.
Also, create a second Admin or User account and see if it is doing it there
as well.

RE: Losing User Info
I've tried twice to reply to this... My messages never seem to post.

When this happens, do you get a message saying that Windows can't load your
profile, and that a temporary one is being created?

If so, I'm having this exact same problem. Have since November. I opened a
case with MS tech support last week to try to resolve it. No solution yet.
