Well now I am having issues first it was stuck at start up configuring updates. I had to go in safe mode and finally it worked. I am not sure why it would do that because I set it to let me configure updates. Now it keeps freezing when I do anything. what the heck is going on with this computer it was working great last night!?

Okay I am experiencing some weird stuff. I shut down the computer to restart it and well it said windows was preparing and when windows came on everything was wiped off from the desktop except for a few things. However firefox was still on there only it opened up as if it was just installed. Google was completely gone!! However there things i downloaded that are still there. All I did was change the admin and password and well this happened. Very strange.Documents done too. Is that because I changed admin and all?
