All Files, Programs, Favorites, Toolbars Gone- Not a Virus
All was working properly when I turned off. In morning, I turned on and saw a HP screen, like when you first fire up a new computer. All programs were gone and files. It looked like a "new computer" and you had to install programs, etc.
The Explorer opening screen was filled with Amazon, Google, Outlook and tools I did not recognize.
I was able to use Restore and it was resolved. I am curious why this happened. All CPU checks seem to be Okay. Nothing out of the ordinary. I am concerned this might happen again.
Would like your input
