As i turned on after password process,win had changed 90% with default screen,could see only few app visible.Mean visual appearance as changed to factory setting.And my download folder showed empty,even though hard disk space occupied.It never happened before.Then i restarted then everything was fine.Iam very curious if this would be threat for real in future..Please let me know why it happens.
