Hello Leelee, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you had system protection turned on, then you may be able to do a system restore at boot using a restore point dated before this happened to hopefully undo it to get you back.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Windows Explorer Lost Pinups
I normally have shortcuts to various folders pinned to my Windows Explorer icon on my toolbar, but sometimes these disappear. Right now is one of those times. All I have are "frequent" folders, without any of my pinup shortcuts. Why does Microsoft hate me so much?
