Freeze - Reboot - Profile damaged? Any program settings lost?
hi,
today my windows vista freezed. i was running an instance of Sql Server Management studio, Firefox, Procmon and Seamonkey i think.
Vista was not responding for about 10 minutes so i pressed the button on my pc to turn my computer off. after i switched it on again and logged into my account (my domain account i'm using all the time). we are NOT using server side profiling - i have my profile only on this computer and not on other pc in the network if i loggon to a different machine!

after the reboot i started firefox - i realized that it has resetted my toolbars and icon size.
seamonkey missed my bookmarks and saved credentials.
visual studio 2008 settings seams to be resetted.
launchy started up in the top left corner like after a fresh installation.
notepad++ says "configurator" Load config.xml failed!

when i open the config.xml in myusername\AppData\Roaming\Notepad++ it is still has 6kb in size but the editor shows only NUL instead of xml.

what happened? how to repair my profile? how to avoid reconfiguring all my programms again?

is procmon to blame? NotePad++ - Load config.xml failed | wehuberconsultingllc.com

thanks for any advise!!!!

Windows cannot find the local profile and is logging you on with a temporary profile. Changes you make to this profile will be lost when you log off. invader@nospamforme.com microsoft.public.windows.vista.general 1 11-01-2007 19:25
